Speech and Language Therapy BMedSc
This three-year course leads to a professional qualification to practice as a speech and language therapist. The course provides an interactive learning experience involving active participation, case based and inquiry based learning and small group teaching with an overall emphasis on integrating theoretical knowledge with clinical expertise.

You'll learn from a team of clinical and research specialists including speech and language therapists, psychologists, audiologists, linguists and information technologists. You'll work closely with your peers and tutors in a supportive environment. Studying alongside and sharing with others will build your confidence as you develop your knowledge and skills towards becoming an independent practitioner.

You'll study a range of subjects including biomedical sciences, psychology, linguistics and communication. You'll develop your clinical expertise through work placements and hands-on training from health professionals.

A key feature of the course is our in-house clinic where you'll benefit from specialist facilities and training. You'll maximise your clinical skills through placements in a diverse range of settings such as schools and hospitals throughout Sheffield and the surrounding areas.

The programme is approved by The Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) and its curriculum is informed by the QAA benchmarks for speech and language therapy, the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) curriculum guidelines and subsequent Health & Care Professions Council Standards of proficiency and standards of education and training for speech and language therapists. The HCPC and the RCSLT approve and accredit the programme.
