Course content

Our MSc Speech and Language Therapy (Pre-Registration) course is an accelerated, two-year postgraduate course aimed at graduates who wish to prepare to practise as a registered speech and language therapist. Our course content reflects the values of the NHS constitution and combines theory and practical sessions over 45 weeks per year.

On the course, you’ll study topics including early language delay, traumatic brain injury, and difficulties swallowing (dysphagia). You’ll also explore areas such as autism and fluency, phonological delay and disorder, and neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease. We aim to prepare you to work across a variety of settings with both children and adults.

To fund your postgraduate pre-registration MSc Speech and Language Therapy course, you'll be able to access standard student loans in line with undergraduate funding for pre-registration courses.

As a graduate of our course, you’re eligible for professional registration with the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

You’ll go on placement in both years of study and have further practice-based learning experiences. Some of the placements you might experience include a special educational needs (SEN) provision in a secondary school, working with children with autism in a residential complex, and working with adults recovering from strokes in hospital.

The majority of our teaching team are speech and language therapists, and you'll have specialist teaching sessions with other experts in their field, such as linguistics.

Many members of our team have worked in local education authorities and across the NHS. Their work experience means that they understand health and education across both paediatric and adult settings.
