Your learning experience
A blended experience
We've worked hard to ensure our students have a rich learning experience even with the challenges posed by the pandemic.
However we may need to adapt next year, you will have everything you need to prepare for a career in audiology, learning from internationally recognised experts at the Manchester Centre for Audiology and Deafness.
How you will learn
You'll cover the theory, practical and clinical aspects of audiology through lectures and tutorials.
Practical skills training takes place in well-equipped labs, while clinical training takes place within NHS and private clinics, where possible.

Support on your course
You'll have access to support through both your course and wider University services.
Student societies and the peer-assisted student support scheme will also enable you to connect with fellow students.
You’ll have an academic advisor who you can turn to if you ever need support for a specific issue.
You will be allocated an academic advisor at the start of your first year. The advisor is a member of staff who is responsible for supporting you through your time at university.
Because the Audiology programme has a small student cohort, you are also likely to be taught by your academic advisor at some point during the programme.
Over the course of your academic career in Manchester, your academic advisor will get to know you, and they will be someone you can always go to if you are having difficulties, either personal or academic.
You will meet your academic advisor at least four times per year, with opportunities to schedule other meetings as needed. Most students will stay with the same academic advisor throughout their course so that there is a continuity of support.
The meetings with your academic advisor will be opportunities to chat about how you are coping with university life and how you are progressing academically.
Your advisor will be able to support you in a range of different ways, and will be able to signpost you to the wide range of other support facilities that are available through the University if necessary.
Your advisor will also encourage you to think about and discuss your plans for the future.

Responding to change
We know the last few months have been challenging and uncertain for us all.
