Unit grade information
Key Skills qualification
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.
