The bachelorchelor Healthcare Science (Audiology) course is a 3 year course of entry level training for clinical audiologists within the NHS and hearing aid dispensers in the independent sector. Within the MSC framework, Audiology is grouped with Neurophysiology and Vision Sciences and elements of these areas will also form part of the first year of this course.

The course covers theoretical, practical and clinical aspects of audiology and related neurosensory topics. Academic components are studied throughout all three years. In years one and two, substantial practical skills training takes place in the well equipped HCD laboratories and clinics. Supervised clinical education and practice takes place within NHS clinics during each of the three years.

We warmly welcome applications from students studying the Key Skills qualification. However, as the opportunities to take these modules are not open to all applicants, currently this is not an essential requirement of the University.


We welcome you to come and get a feel for what it's like to study at the School of Psychological Sciences, at one of our open days

We require 33-34 points overall including 6, 5, 5 points at higher level (with at least one science subject).
We require A2 B1 B2 B2 B2/A2 A2 B2 B2 B3 including at least two of the following subjects; Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths, Psychology.
We require grades AABBB including two of the following subjects: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and Psychology
We require grades ABB including one of the following subjects: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and Psychology. General Studies is welcomed but not normally included as part of the standard offer.
A pass is accepted as equivalent to A at A Level. A science subject must also be studied.
European bachelorccalaureate is acceptable on its own or in combination with other qualifications. If you are studying for this qualification, applications are welcome will be considered on an individual bachelorsis.
Applications from EU students are welcomed. We are not able to accept applications from students regarded as international for fees purposes:

Entry requirements for your country
Extended Diploma:
minimum of 70 credits awarded at Distinction, 100 at Merit and the remaining 10 credits at Pass or above

Grade A at A level plus the BTEC Diploma with a minimum of 110 credits awarded at Merit and 10 credits at Pass.

Subsidiary Diploma:
BTEC Subsidiary diploma: AB at A Level plus 50 credits at merit and 10 at pass
The BTEC Extended Diploma must be in a healthcare or science subject. Applicants with the Diploma or Subsidiary Diploma must have either a science subject at A Level or a science/healthcare related BTEC.
If you are applying for this course, you should follow a Healthcare or Science pathway and study at least 15 credits of Science. Required grades are 15 credits at Distinction and 30 credits at Merit. If you do not have a Grade B at GCSE, or equivalent, in Mathematics should contact the University for further advice.
We welcome applications with the Advanced Placement qualification. Such applications will be considered on an individual bachelorsis.
We welcome the introduction of the level 3 specialised diplomas (guidance regarding progression opportunities and subject and grade requirements will be published soon).
If you have followed a non-standard educational route and have been, for example, educated at home, your application will be considered against the standard entry criteria of the course to which you applied. You will be required to demonstrate that you meet the academic entry requirements as specified for the course. We will also require a reference which should be written by somebody who knows you well enough, in an official capacity, to write about you and your suitability for higher education. Please refer to UCAS for further information: UCAS reference guidelines
If you have qualifications other than those listed, or returners to education should contact us
for further advice.
Applicants for whom English is not a first language should appreciate that a particularly high standard of spoken and written English is necessary to cope with academic and clinical work.
As a minimum, we require IELTS 7.5 overall (with a minimum of 7.0 in each component). However, there is a great need for audiologists who are fluent in more than one language and graduates with such skills would be a valuable addition to the profession.
Some English language test results are only valid for two years. Your English language test report must be valid on the start date of the course.
It is not possible for all audiology service providers to offer work experience for applicants, therefore this is not
a requirement. However some practical experience of working in Audiology related environments would be beneficial, e.g. the private sector, charitable organisations, lip-reading classes, Tinnitus support groups etc.
