Integrated Masters - Master of Science (Honours) (MSci) - Speech and Language Therapy (B62M) at University of Reading: Tuition Fee: £23,700.00 GBP / Year (Scholarship Available)

In Speech and Language Therapy (SLT), students will benefit directly from world-class research into subjects, such as linguistics, language development, language pathology, and bilingualism. They will also be able to take advantage of Reading's in-house speech and language therapy clinic, observational facilities, speech research laboratory and new sound recording room. Reading is one of the first departments in the UK to host NHS clinics in its purpose-built speech and language therapy facility on site.

The course has recently changed to an undergraduate entry integrated Masters from a BSc degree, and has been approved by the Health Care Professions Council. Once students graduate from the MSci Speech and Language Therapy program, graduates can apply for professional registration with the Health and Care Professions Council which will then allow them to work as a speech and language therapist.  The MSci has been identified by students, local employers and other stakeholders as the best way forward to maintain quality and enjoyment of the program and to support future employment.

This course combines theoretical knowledge with clinical practice and students will gain hands-on experience right from the start. For example, in year one, during the "Child Development Assignment", students will be assigned a baby and go to home visits in order to observe its development over approximately 18 months. This will allow them to observe how a typically developing child develops, and enable students to develop your professional skills of interacting with parents and engaging with young children.

Throughout the course students will study core modules in linguistics, psychology, medical sciences and language pathology. Courses will also cover therapy and management, and how to diagnose, assess and treat (or manage) communication and swallowing disorders. They will also have the opportunity to gain valuable experience of working within a large range of professional settings through a combination of weekly and block placement opportunities. The majority of Reading's staff are practicing speech and language therapists, and they will give students a direct insight into the latest developments in clinical practice.

During the final year you will be able to pursue your own interests through optional subjects such as autism spectrum disorders or specific language impairments. Additionally, students will carry out an original piece of research and write a dissertation.
