Overview

Welcome to the KU Leuven Webinar Week from 29 November to 1 December 2023. The Webinar Week will introduce you to KU Leuven and help you discover all that our university offers. You can check out videos from our various faculties and ask any questions you might have about your desired academic programme.

The Master of Deglutology programme from KU Leuven originated from high demand for professionals specialised in the care of patients with swallowing disorders in the mouth, throat or oesophagus. This interdisciplinary programme will cover all the associated areas of study and equip the student with the necessary tools and experience to enter the workplace with confidence to solve problems and to face the current challenges in clinical care.

This interdisciplinary programme uses a theoretical in-depth, research-based approach to train you as a competent professional in the science of deglutition. You will learn a variety of clinical skills, gain hands-on experience, and develop unique competencies used in clinical, diagnostic, and therapeutic settings related to this expanding field.

Career prospects

Once you obtain this academic master's degree, you will be able to focus on the integrated care of patients with lifelong or newly onset swallowing disorders in the mouth, throat or oesophagus.
