Career opportunities

BSc Speech and Language Therapy - Richard Stephens

"I'm now getting ready to further my dream with a potential career in postgraduate stammering research.

"I want to help better understand this speech disorder, not only for myself, but for the benefit of the millions of people who stammer worldwide."

Richard Stephens / 2017 graduate and MSc Neuroimaging for Clinical and Cognitive Neuroscience student

Speech and language therapists in the UK are mainly employed by the NHS, although there are opportunities within charitable and private organisations. Many therapists work in educational settings and some set up in independent practice or take research posts. There are also opportunities overseas.

Our graduates have gone on to work in areas such as:

  • acute dysphagia (feeding and swallowing) and stroke rehabilitation;
  • developmental language disorder, speech sound disorder and communication difficulties in community settings such as health centres, clinics, early years settings, schools and colleges;
  • supporting children and young people with special educational needs;
  • voice and communication for trans and non-binary people;
  • research at The University of Manchester.
