What you will study
The Master of Audiology consists of audiology topics, clinical audiology topics, professional studies topics, and research topics. Audiology topics, which address the scientific foundations of audiology and how they interface with clinical practice in diagnosing and managing auditory disorders, are studied alongside clinical audiology and professional studies, which provide the skills necessary to produce a competent beginning practitioner. Topics that address current issues of specific and general relevance to audiologists as health professionals are also introduced throughout the course.
“I had a nice relationship with all my lecturers. They were committed to helping you out with everything, especially if you showed that you cared about your work. Uni organised for me to go to Flinders Partners to work on software for innovation management. I was so pleased when they offered me a full-time position.”
