Speech & Language Therapy - Structured

Course overview
The Discipline of Speech & Language Therapy aims to stimulate, conduct and disseminate high quality research in language, communication, eating / drinking / swallowing, and education which will have a significant impact on speech and language therapy practice and education. At this point we can offer a Structured PhD in Language Science which is open to graduates with clinical and non-clinical degrees. For applicants who are not qualified speech and language therapists, this degree does not provide a qualification in speech and language therapy.

Entry requirements

PhD candidates should normally have a high honours standard in a relevant academic discipline at primary degree level or equivalent together with the support of an academic staff member who is approved by the College to supervise the research in terms of its nature and scope.

Additional entry requirements
Candidates may be required to submit a research proposal for consideration by the School as part of their application.
