View by page | View all content (for printing)
Applicants for whom English is not a first language should appreciate that a particularly high standard of spoken and written English is necessary to cope with academic and clinical work.
As a minimum, the School requires IELTS 7.5 overall. However, there is a great need for audiologists who are fluent in more than one language and graduates with such skills would be a valuable addition to the profession.
Applications from EU students are welcomed. The School is not able to accept applications from students regarded as international for fees purposes:
Extended Diploma: 160 credits at Merit with the remaining 20 at Pass
Diploma: B at A level plus 110 credits at Merit and 10 at Pass
Subsidiary Diploma: BB at A level plus 50 credits at Merit and 10 at Pass
The BTEC Extended Diploma must be in a healthcare or science subject. Applicants with the Diploma or Subsidiary Diploma must have either a science subject at A Level or a science/healthcare related BTEC.
Applications are considered on an individual basis, e.g. additional educational achievements, life experience and skills. Please contact the University for further information.
Normal requirements for diploma applicants are 60 (10 hour) credits with 45 at Level 3 and the remainder at Level 2. We recommend that potential applicants choose either the Health or Science pathway with a minimum of 15 credits in a science subject. We would prefer a minimum of 24 credits with distinction and 12 with merit. Applicants who do not have a Grade B at GCSE, or equivalent, in Mathematics should contact the University for further advice.
