This dynamic 2 year full-time program integrates the theoretical foundations of audiology with practical clinical skills to prepare you for a career as an audiologist. You'll also have the opportunity to contribute to the development of clinical audiology by undertaking your own research. 

You'll learn from experienced audiology educators and researchers who are specialists in areas including neuroscience and rehabilitation, ageing, participation and disability. You'll also complete more than 250 hours of supervised clinical placements at UQ’s Audiology Clinic, as well as other private and public clinics and educational facilities in Brisbane and around Australia.
