Course description

Speech and Language Therapy MSc / Postgrad Diploma

Speech and Language Therapy MSc / Postgrad Diploma - a City University degree programme

The Speech and Language Therapy PG Diploma provides important training in taking care of  autistic children, people who stammer or adults who have lost their speech following a stroke.

The programme, provided by proven industry experts, uses innovative and research-informed curriculum for providing lectures in speech and language therapy. The programme is taught by expert staffs who are leaders in the field of speech and language therapy.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Applicants should hold an upper second class honours degree or the equivalent from an international institution.

If you don't have a first degree or meet the PG Diploma entry requirements you may be eligible for the BSc (Hons) Speech and Language Therapy.

Pre-requisites

While many applicants have a degree in a related subject area, such as linguistics or psychology, this is not a pre-requisite. Students on the course come from a range of academic backgrounds, both in the arts and sciences.

For those students whose first language is not English, the following qualification is also required:

  • IELTS: 7.5 with a minimum of 7.5 in spoken and written components and a minimum of 7.0 in listening and reading components.

Please note that due to changes in the UKVI's list of SELTs we are no longer able to accept TOEFL as evidence of English language for students who require a CAS as of April 2014.

If you are not from the European Economic Area / Switzerland and you are coming to study in the UK you may need to apply for a visa or entry clearance to come to the UK to study. /p>

The way that you apply may vary depending on the length of your course; there are different rules for:

  • Students on courses of more than 6 months
  • Students on courses of less than 6 months
  • Students on a pre-sessional English Language course

Please note: If you require a Tier 4 student visa to study in the UK, you cannot undertake any City University London courses on a part-time basis.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

On successfully completing the Postgraduate Diploma you can register with the Health Professions Council, and practise as a speech and language therapist in the NHS and other settings.

A career in speech and language therapy offers opportunities to work with clients of all ages in settings such as health centres, hospitals, schools, charities and universities. You can also work abroad and in the private sector.

On successful completion of the Postgraduate Diploma you can choose to undertake a MSc by designing and completing a research project for a year.
