OzTREKK Funny Friday
A boy had a speech impediment and couldn’t pronounce the letter R, so his mother took him to a speech pathologist.
The therapist gave him a sentence to practice at home: “Robert gave Richard a rap in the ribs for roasting the rabbit so rare.”
A week later, the boy went back for a follow-up appointment and the therapist asked him to repeat the sentence.
The boy sat up proudly and replied, “Bob gave Dick a poke in the side because he didn’t cook the bunny enough.”

Speech pathology programs in Australia aim to equip students with the theoretical knowledge, skills and professional attributes necessary for a career in speech pathology. Graduate qualifications in speech pathology from Australian universities are recognized internationally, and graduates are eligible to apply for certification in Canada.
The following OzTREKK Australian universities offer graduate-entry speech pathology programs, which allow graduates to apply to become certified as speech pathologists:

There are a limited number of places available in speech pathology programs in Australia for international students, and program start dates, admissions requirements, and application deadlines vary among universities. All programs require a student to have completed a bachelor’s degree and specific undergraduate subjects. These undergraduate prerequisites vary among Australian speech pathology programs.
