MSc Audiology / Careers

Year of entry: 2024

Career opportunities

Our course will prepare you to enter roles in clinical management and practice in audiology, as well as teaching and research.

At Manchester, we conduct a range of research including developing testing techniques to check that babies between the age of three and seven months are able to hear a range of speech sounds when wearing hearing aids. We travel around Britain in our specially adapted hearing van to perform testing close to families' homes.

Find out more about this research: Testing a baby's hearing (YouTube).

Graduates of this course have progressed to a PhD, while others have entered health-related professions or gone into work with large hearing aid manufacturers and voluntary sectors.

Other students have successfully applied for the  Scientist Training Programme  (STP). This is the training route to become a Healthcare Scientist/Clinical Scientist. Read a  blog post  by one of our MSc graduates about his experience of both the master's course and STP programme.
