UQ's Bachelor of Speech Pathology (Honours) is recognised nationally and internationally for its award-winning teachers and graduate leaders, and is ranked #1 in Australia by students.
Discover how to help people of all ages with speech, language, fluency, swallowing and voice disorders. You'll work with a wide range of people, from small children who have difficulties understanding their parents to injured adults who need to learn how to speak and swallow again.
You'll integrate your learning from Years 2 to 4 through case-based and simulated learning activities that will help you develop a range of practical client management skills. You'll also undertake simulated activities in the school's six-bed simulation ward, and learn how to use innovative systems like telepractice.
Importantly, you'll complete a range of supervised clinical placements to demonstrate your competency for entry into the profession. These clinical placements can include hospitals, educational facilities, healthcare organisations, private practices and UQ's own open-to-the-public Speech Pathology clinic.
