The Audiological Science MSc provides a detailed study of the hearing and balance mechanisms: their structure, function and pathology. The relationship between laboratory research and clinical aspects forms a key element: lectures, demonstrations and tutorials will be complemented by practical experience in the clinic and laboratory. What and how will I learn? Students obtain experience in defined audio-vestibular assessment procedures and rehabilitation through in-house demonstrations and practical training. The second term includes clinical placements at the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital, Nuffield Centre, The Royal London, Brocklebank Health Centre, St. Georges Hospital and National Hospital for Neurological Diseases. Degree Structure Students undertake courses to the value of 180 credits. The programme consists of eight core courses (120 credits) and a research project (60 credits). A Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits, full-time nine months) is offered. Core Modules Auditory Biophysics and Electroacoustics Anatomy and Physiology Clinical Audiology Introduction to Hearing Aids Balance Paediatric Audiology Clinical and Professional Practice Research Methods and Statistics Dissertationreport All MSc students undertake an independent research project which culminates in a dissertation of approximately 10,000-15,000 words. Options All courses are compulsory. Further details available on subject website: http:www.ucl.ac.ukeartrainingpostgraduateindex The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, tutorials, practical demonstrations, and clinical placements.
