Embark on the career pathway for Healthcare Scientists, accredited by the National School of Healthcare Science by studying the Clinical Science (Neurosensory Sciences) programme at Aston University. The scheme aims to provide an appropriately trained workforce to work in the NHS through clinical science training.


The Department of Health has introduced a new career pathway for Healthcare Scientists. Students are employed within NHS Departments and released to undertake academic study. Please note, this course is commissioned by the National School of Healthcare Science, therefore, you do not apply directly to the Aston University for this course. 

This includes clinical science training to provide an appropriately trained workforce to work in the NHS. This requires the education and training of practitioners in the division of neurosensory science. This division is made up of 3 pathways:
  • Audiology
  • Neurophysiology
  • Ophthalmic and Vision Sciences.

Career prospects

This Clinical Science (Neurosensory Sciences) programme at Aston University sits within the Department of Health’s vision for the Healthcare Science workforce. The aim is to develop practitioners who can improve the scientific profile within healthcare and who have the requisite skills to enhance both the diagnosis and treatment of patients in the NHS. 

Our graduates will be well placed to enter careers in hospitals, community-based practice and also related research areas. Previous graduates have become advanced practitioners or gone on to lead a section of service.

The programme is designed to formally meet the requirements of the NHS and builds on Aston’s established links and extensive experience of health education.
