Objectives

As a student on the BSc (Hons)/MSLT Speech and Language Therapy course you will learn in a world-leading environment from academics who are at the forefront of the field. The course covers the foundations of speech and language therapy including both the social and clinical context of human communication. In the fourth year of the course you will partake in clinical placements to develop your practical and clinical skills and knowledge of the field.

The innovative and research-informed curriculum is supported by the Roberta Williams Speech and Language Therapy Centre, our in-house SLT clinic led by specialist practitioners which offers excellent practice placement opportunities to students. You can also take advantage of City’s close links with speech and language therapy services throughout London.

This degree leads to work in a challenging and varied field – you could be working with autistic children, people who stammer or adults who have lost their speech following a stroke.

If you have already graduated with a primary degree, City also offers a two year fast-track MSc in Speech and Language Therapy.
