Australian Audiology Schools

  • Graduate-entry, Professional Speech Pathology Programs in Australia
  • Macquarie University School of Clinical Audiology
  • University of Queensland School of Audiology

Audiology is a growing discipline in the health sciences that deals with the study, diagnosis and rehabilitation of the auditory system of the human body. Audiology, as a clinical profession, uses applied science to develop and perform precision tests that locate the specific range and frequency of hearing loss, information necessary for implementing an effective recovery strategy. Additionally, audiology identifies and treats dysfunctions of the vestibular system, which can affect one's balance and spatial orientation.

There are very few Canadian universities that offer a Master of Audiology, and only three audiology schools teach solely as English-language programs. Consequently, competitive admissions arising from so few spots have made Australian schools an attractive option for Canadians who wish to learn the requisite clinical skills to practice audiology.

Australian audiology schools offering graduate-entry study in audiology design their programs to operate along two fronts. On the first, students are taught the scientific and theoretical knowledge of audiology as a branch of the health sciences; on the second front students develop the fundamental skills and techniques dedicated to the practice of audiology as a clinical profession. Australian universities are internationally recognized, and graduates of an Australian audiology program are eligible to apply for certification in Canada.

The following OzTREKK Australian universities offer graduate-entry audiology programs that allow graduates to apply to become certified as audiologists:

Flinders University
Macquarie University Audiology School
University of Queensland Audiology School

 

Professional Certification/Accreditation Information

Upon graduation, you are eligible to apply to become an audiologist in Canada. For a detailed overview of the certification process, please visit Speech-Language & Audiology Canada (SAC).

It is imperative that you understand the requirements and procedures associated with entering the audiology profession in Canada. It is your responsibility to meet the necessary requirements to become a member of the regulatory body in your province, if necessary. Currently in Canada, eight provinces require mandatory registration with a regulatory body.
