Course content

Approved by the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists and the Health and Care Professions Council.

This course leads to a professional qualification to practise as a speech and language therapist. You’ll be able to work in a diverse range of settings, for example schools and hospitals, nurseries, clinics or the client’s home. You might also pursue a role in higher education and research.

Speech and language therapists provide treatment and care for children and adults who have difficulties with communicating, eating, drinking or swallowing. Therapists take a collaborative approach, working alongside the individual’s carer, teacher or family, as well as other professionals.

You’ll investigate a range of subjects, including biomedical sciences, psychology, linguistics, communication and research methods. You’ll learn how to assess and manage a range of communication and swallowing disorders.

Your skills will be put into practice through a series of clinical placements throughout the course.

We’re one of only a few departments of our kind to run an in-house clinic. So as an MMedSci student at Sheffield, you’ll benefit from specialist facilities and training. To maximise your clinical skills, you’ll go on placements in our clinic and in settings throughout Sheffield and surrounding areas.
