Audiology

Interested in studying audiology? You have options! Australian universities are world-ranking institutions highly respected in the field of audiology. Enjoy a career in a growing discipline in the health sciences that deals with the study, diagnosis, and rehabilitation of the auditory system of the human body.

OverviewStudying audiology

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 are taught solely as an English-language program. 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 universities 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.

“… you really get to know your profs and the upper years”

I love it. UQ is a great school, great location and a beautiful campus. My program is great because the size is so small, you really get to know your profs and the upper years. Everyone is very approachable and are happy to help.
