This new programme at University College Cork in Audiology has been designed to qualify students to practice the profession of Audiology. The aim of the programme is to educate, train and inspire confident clinicians who can meet the challenges of providing an integrated, sophisticated and scientific approach to assessing and managing the needs of children and adults with hearing and balance disorders.
The programme is full-time over three semesters per year over the two years. Students will attend a mix of lectures and Problem Based Learning (PBL) tutorials which students apply knowledge in a sophisticated way to solve real-life problems efficiently.
Practice education will be structured to include weekly clinics during the teaching semester based in new purpose-built in-house Brookfield Audiology Clinic and in designated local audiology clinics around Cork. The students will learn practical skills supervised by Practice Tutors on these sites. During the summer, block placements will broaden experience using nationally available sites around Ireland.
