(For part-time students, these sessions will be spread over two academic years.) You will attend both class and lab-based taught sessions with fellow students, and engage in student-led discussions and practical assignments.
We'll confirm the dates of residential sessions as soon as we can, so that you can plan around your work and book your accommodation in advance.
Please note that this course doesn't currently provide a direct route to the Registration Council for Clinical Physiologists (RCCP). However, you can pursue an alternative pathway to registration after qualification.
Our Employability Service is here to help give you the best chance of landing the job you want. We’ll help you improve your skills and bulk up your CV to improve your career prospects. As a distance learning student, you’ll still benefit from help and advice on CV writing, interview techniques, job hunting, and general careers advice.
After graduating from our BSc (Hons) Hearing Sciences you might choose to apply for a postgraduate research award. Our academic staff have a wealth of research experience across a wide range of areas related to hearing science, as well as disability research in general. They have a history of publication in high-impact journals and have attracted grants from research councils, charitable trusts and industry. As a university, we have firm links with Addenbrooke’s Hospital, and international collaborations in countries including Sweden, Finland, India, Portugal, Iran and China.
Your progress will be monitored through regular online interaction, including discussion boards, blogs and assignments. You'll complete and submit an assignment at the end of the first semester, in January. Meanwhile, your Undergraduate Major Project is submitted by the end of the second semester, in May. There are no exams.
