Course info

Summary

Our Language Pathology MSc is designed for those wanting to develop a career as a Speech and Language Therapist in the National Health Service or other settings. This practical course is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council and accredited by the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists.

In year one you will cover modules in psychology, linguistics and anatomy/physiology that underpin the discipline. You will also begin to work on speech and language therapy (SLT) cases and have your first experiences of working clinically under supervision.

Year two is more specialised with a focus on motor, head and neck and cognitive impairments. With academic and clinical supervision, you will carry out and write up a clinically-based research project (an extended case report), based on a therapy programme that you will deliver and evaluate to one client with the support of both a practice educator and academic supervisor.

You need to be able to identify with NHS values as stated in the NHS constitution.

Teaching is delivered through case-based problem solving which means you will be participating in guided self-directed learning and collaborating with peers in group work.

Our staff have an immense amount of experience of delivering SLT courses and many are qualified and experienced speech and language therapists. Many are involved in research in this area and our teaching is supported by research.

We take a student-centred approach to your development of knowledge, thinking and professional identity. Within clinical practice, you will receive tailored supervision, with a focus on reflective skills. We also provide transparent and fair assessment procedures with clear and specific marking criteria for coursework, helping you to achieve your potential.

Accreditation

The course is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and accredited by the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists. On successful completion of the programme you can apply to register with the HCPC and RCSLT as a speech and language therapist.
