Healthcare scientists use scientific methods to test and treat people who have a range of health conditions. Those specialising in audiology work in hospitals and health clinics, assessing people’s hearing and balance, and managing conditions such as hearing loss, tinnitus and balance disorders.
Audiologists are key medical professionals who work to identify and treat disorders that occur in the auditory and vestibular system. With a rising demand for professionals in this field, our audiology course is designed to equip you for practice in the healthcare industry.
Specifically designed for students who have previously completed a Foundation Degree in Hearing Aid Audiology at Aston, or a similar course at a recognised UK institution. You’ll gain direct entry into the final year of our BSc (Hons) Healthcare Science (Audiology) course where you will learn a blend of healthcare sciences, audiology, clinical practice and applied research methods.
