Aston University: Hearing Therapy
|Department||School of Life and Health Sciences|
The Doctor of Hearing Therapy is aimed at practising audiologists, who will complete case records where required for taught module coursework and will undertake a practice-based research project.
The Doctor of Hearing Therapy course can be broken into four stages. You have the option of taking each of the four stages in order, or it is possible to exit the course at any of the stages, enabling you to be flexible with your level of commitment at the outset. It is also possible to take any of the following modules independently as they are offered as part of the School of Life and Health Sciences Continuing Professional Development portfolio.
The programme is based on blended-learning to enable it to be conducted while you remain in practice and applying the knowledge you gain from lectures to complete you assignments and case records based on theory and evidence-based practice.
The number of taught elements taken at any time is flexible:
• **MSc**. programme requires six taught modules (120 credits) to be undertaken along with a research methods tuition and written research dissertation (60 credits total) (all within 5-6 years)
• **DHearing Therapy** requires nine taught modules (180 credits) plus a full practice-based research project (all within 6-7 years)
