Program description

Healthcare Science (Audiology)

Our three-year BSc Healthcare Science (Audiology) course offers practitioner-level training and a qualification accredited by the HCPC, RCCP and AHCS, allowing you to work within both the NHS and the independent sector.

You will study the theoretical, practical and clinical aspects of audiology that are needed to practice as an audiologist and hearing aid dispenser.

The course includes topics and placements in closely related healthcare science areas such as neurophysiology and vision sciences in Year 1.

In Year 2, you will learn about inter-professional practice in group workshops with nursing, midwifery, pharmacy and dentistry students. Studying alongside other healthcare professionals will equip you to be a 21st century health practitioner working in diverse multidisciplinary teams.

In addition to learning degree-level skills and core audiology academic content. you will have 50 weeks of practical clinical training. Practical training is included in all three years of the course, with substantial practical skills training taking place in our Manchester Centre for Audiology and Deafness (ManCAD) laboratories.

Throughout this course, you will use the skills you develop to assess and treat patients in clinics offering a range of audiology services, while under expert supervision. This is undertaken in independent sector training placements in Years 1 and 2 and NHS training placements in all years.

Admission requirements

Applicants taking A Levels are normally expected to offer three full A Levels. The majority of courses at the University require grades in the region of AAA-ABB at A Level. There are a few courses that require lower grades and some courses that require higher grades. Applicants are advised to check the specific entry requirements for their chosen course.

If you are taking more than three A-levels, please be aware that any additional A-levels will not be included within their offer. We only make offers consisting of three A-level grades.

Practical Science

Practical skills are a crucial part of science education and therefore there will be a requirement to pass the practical element of any science A Level taken. Where applicants are applying for science and related degrees, this is likely to be made explicit in the offers you will receive.

English language requirements

English Language requirements vary by course and department but are usually the equivalent of IELTS 6.0–7.0 (or 5.5 for foundation courses).

Some Schools ask that the appropriate score has been met before you apply for a course while other departments give conditional offers subject to you achieving our general entry requirement level of English Language proficiency before starting the course.
