“UQ is known as a global leader for research and they’re doing very exciting things in speech pathology. I chose UQ knowing that it’s strong research foundation and placement opportunities would prepare me for life as a clinician. I’ve had the opportunity to interact with real speech clients under the supervision of a clinical educator and my professors are always more than happy to give me tips to use with my clients in clinic. Applying my theoretical classroom knowledge to clinical situations has given me invaluable skills that I will definitely use when I start practicing as a speech pathologist.”
