About

The Speech Language Pathology program at the University of Sydney prepares you for professional practice as a speech pathologist, developing the skills to assess and treat people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures, and change lives by making it easier for people to communicate. 

Overview

The Speech Language Pathology program at the University of Sydney states that one in seven Australians have some form of communication disability, such as a problem with speech, using and/or understanding language, voice, fluency, hearing or reading and writing. As a speech pathology student, you will learn to work with children and adults with such communication and speech difficulties, as well as those clients who have swallowing difficulties or need alternative ways to communicate. 

During this two-year degree, you will learn from leading experts in a curriculum that has been specifically designed to enable students to learn in a way that resembles the clinical practice of speech therapy. Case-based learning underpins this program and is complemented by extensive clinical placements which provide hands-on experience with real clients in a supervised environment.

The Master of Speech Language Pathology is a graduate-entry program designed to accommodate all suitably qualified candidates regardless of their previous discipline. Accredited by Speech Pathology Australia, graduates are eligible for practicing membership of the association, which is a requirement to work as a speech pathologist in Australia. A career in speech pathology gives you the rewarding opportunity to work across hospitals, private practice, schools and early childhood services.
