Course description

This programme aims to provide the theoretical, practical and clinical basis of the science of audiology. It contains a number of short clinical placements in NHS audiology departments in the North West of England.

Successful completion of the course provides you with an MSc in Audiology. Please note, this is an academic qualification only. A further clinical training programme is required to achieve clinical competency and eligibility for registration as a qualified audiologist or hearing aid dispenser.

These requirements vary from country to country and we encourage any potential applicants to check these requirements with the health service in your country before you apply.


For entry in the academic year beginning September 2017, the tuition fees are as follows:

  • MSc (full-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): £9,500
    International students (per annum): £21,500

The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive for the course tuition, administration and computational costs during your studies.

All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of courses lasting more than a year for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry).

For general fees information please visit postgraduate fees . Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your qualification award and method of attendance.

Self-funded international applicants for this course will be required to pay a deposit of £1000 towards their tuition fees before a confirmation of acceptance for studies (CAS) is issued. This deposit will only be refunded if immigration permission is refused. We will notify you about how and when to make this payment.

Additional expenses

An essential component of this course is a clinical placement. This will be located in the North West region. Please note that this will incur additional travel and accommodation expenses for which there will be no funding provided.


NHS Health Education North West (HENW) funding is not available for this programme.

All students who enrol on this course may be eligible for a bursary. These will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

The University of Manchester also has a number of bursaries aimed at removing barriers to masters study for students. Find out if you are eligible.
