Doctor of Hearing Therapy Aston University, Birmingham




Course info


Course summary

Gain a Professional Doctorate in Hearing Therapy by studying rehabilitative practices and developing communication and counselling skills at Aston University. Through critical and original reading of audiological practices, you will be equipped to enable problem solving and application of audiology to marginalised and complex patient groups.

Course outline and what you will study

The Doctor of Hearing Therapy course can be broken into four stages. You have the option of taking each of the four stages in order, or it is possible to exit the course at any of the stages, enabling you to be flexible with your level of commitment at the outset. It is also possible to take any of the following modules independently as they are offered as part of the School of Life and Health Sciences Continuing Professional Development portfolio.

The programme is based on blended-learning to enable it to be conducted while you remain in practice and applying the knowledge you gain from lectures to complete you assignments and case records based on theory and evidence-based practice.

Learning, teaching, assessment and staff

This course is delivered via blended learning - mainly distance learning but with some essential on campus face to face delivery, which will also give you the opportunity to participate in group activities to meet fellow Doctor of Hearing Therapy students.

All taught modules are worth 20 credits each, which is nominally equivalent to 200 hours of student learning. Modules consist of remote access lectures with electronic formative assessments and a module coursework assignment such as reflective case records, or an essay/literature review related to the module.

The research stage requires a significant long-term commitment, as it is equivalent to around 2 years of full-time work (i.e. 4 years part-time). Candidates ultimately submit a thesis which is examined in a viva voce examination.

Your future career prospects

The Doctor of Hearing Therapy is a unique qualification - a professional doctorate providing you with opportunities to pursue the study of rehabilitative practices and to develop their communication and counselling skills. It enables a critical and original reading of audiological practices, enabling problem solving and application of audiology to marginalised and complex patient groups.

Rehabilitation continues to be a core part of providing audiological care. Audiology patients are predominantly service users for life and their needs are only partly addressed by technological solutions. The importance of continuing to deliver rehabilitation opportunities beyond hearing aids and to support education and social care provision of services has been recognised in the recent Department of Health Action Plan (April 2015).
