Course description

Our three-year BSc Speech and Language Therapy course will prepare you for a career as a speech and language therapist who treats, supports and cares for those with communication, eating, drinking or swallowing problems.

You will develop the core theoretical knowledge and specialist clinical skills required by the speech and language therapy profession while learning the academic study skills you need to earn a higher education qualification.

Our course places particular emphasis on scientific thinking, preparing you to incorporate clinical enquiry into your chosen career path. You will gain practical, hands-on experience through placements.

Depending on your performance in Years 1 to 3, you will have the opportunity to extend your studies by a year to undertake an integrated master's .

You will be able to register with the  Health and Care Professions Council  and the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists after graduation.

Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2017 will be £9,250 per annum. Future inflationary increases will be applied to each subsequent year of the course, subject to government regulations on fee increases. Tuition fees for international students will be £21,000 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate finance pages.

Please note that undergraduate tuition fees will apply for the fourth year of the integrated master's.

From 1 August 2017, new nursing, midwifery and allied health students will no longer receive NHS funding or bursaries. Instead, you will have access to the same student loans system as other students.

If this is your second tuition fee loan for an undergraduate course:

It is not usually possible for students who already have loans from a first degree to access student loans for a second degree at the same or lower qualification level (this is called the Equivalent or Lower Qualification (ELQ) rule). However, the Government is currently in talks to make certain allied health courses exempt to the ELQ rule. At present they intend that students studying nursing, midwifery and the allied health subjects (such as SLT) as a second degree will also be able to get student loans, but this has not yet been finalised.

See  more information about changes to NHS bursaries on the government's website .

International students:

Fees for laboratory, science and engineering-based degrees are £21,000 per annum. See more information about international fees .
