Course content

This one year part-time course offers speech and language therapists who already have a license to practise an opportunity to develop specialist skills in all aspects of dysphagia (feeding and swallowing disorders) in both adult and paediatric populations. Classes are timetabled to facilitate speech and language therapists in employment and overseas students.

Students registering for the Postgraduate Diploma will attend each of the six intensively taught 5 day modules spread throughout the year in dysphagia, incorporating research methods, evidence based practice, advanced clinical skills and reflective practice. Students who have not completed an introductory course in dysphagia will have to complete an additional intensive week in dysphagia.
