About The Course
The University of Western Australia is the only Australian university that offers a combined PhD and master's degree in audiology that can be completed over four years. Audiology is the clinical science involving the prevention, assessment and rehabilitation of hearing loss and associated communication disorders.
The Clinical Audiology and Doctor of Philosophy course is an intensive full-time program with tuition divided between intensive modules and clinical placements. The intensive modules require full-time attendance, equivalent to 40 hours per week, over their whole duration, which is usually seven weeks. Clinical placements are managed by the Clinical Coordinator, and students can expect to be placed in external audiology clinics for around 500 hours across the degree.
Many audiologists are involved in research, helping to develop new behavioural and electrophysiological test techniques, cochlear implants, hearing aids and hearing health therapies. Some audiologists work in community and workplace settings including programs aimed at reducing the prevalence and impact of middle ear disease in rural and remote aboriginal communities, newborn hearing screening programs and hearing conservation programs in industry.
The Doctor of Philosophy and Master of Clinical Audiology is accredited by Audiology Australia, and graduates are eligible for full membership after completion of an Audiology Australia internship program.
