The BSc (Hons) Speech and Language Therapy programme offers students the opportunity to gain a qualification which entitles them to apply to the Health Professions Council for registration allowing them to practise as a Speech and Language Therapist.

The MSc Speech and Language Therapy (Pre-Registration) programme offers a postgraduate route to registration as a Speech and Language Therapist for students holding a first degree in Psychology and holding Graduate Basis for Registration with the British Psychological Society.

The underlying philosophy of all these degree programmes is that the integration of the three way interaction between research, theory and clinical practice will produce knowledgeable and confident Speech and Language Therapists. To this end, progression through the programmes demonstrates an increase in autonomy, student directed learning and capacity for life-long professional development.

Within Clinical Placements there is a dedicated Student Resource Centre (SRC) and specialist clinical rooms for students.  These offer a working space to be creative, loan assessments and resources of which there are over 2000 for Speech and Language Therapy.  There are video cameras, tripods and Dictaphones for clinical placements, all resources are loaned free of charge. There are also Technical Services and Technical support officers who manage the SRC and provide support for students on using the equipment within the SRC and specialist ICON centre based on the 3rd floor.
