Audiology is the study of hearing and balance and their associated disorders and Audiologists are the health service professionals who work as part of multi-disciplinary team providing assessment and rehabilitation for people referred for help with hearing / balance problems.
The role of the Audiologist is to apply a scientific approach to assessment, rehabilitation and management in a caring and patient focussed way.
The BSc Audiology programme combines professional and clinical training with academic study and provides the professional qualification to work as a registered Audiologist. It is a four-year, full time course.
There is a professional body for Audiologists – the British Academy of Audiology.
