Audiology is an exciting career with many avenues for employment and specialization. It involves both a strong scientific interest and aptitude with exceptional interpersonal and communication skills, oral as well as written. Along with rigorous academic and clinical training, the Audiology team at De Montfort University provides exciting national and international extra-curricular experiences, available for students to apply for to help you stand out from the crowd.
Hearing is an incredibly complex area to study; diagnosing the medical conditions that can affect your hearing is a skill which you will learn and relies on many tests which you will learn about and be able to conduct. Equally, helping people with a hearing difficulty is challenging and will require significant skills from you to help them in their everyday life.
Career opportunities are varied and include roles within the NHS, the private sector and with hearing aid and audiology manufacturers at home and abroad.

Many graduates have secured clinical posts prior to them completing the course. Primarily graduates have chosen clinical posts which typically are within NHS trusts, but as Audiology services change, graduates are undertaking NHS work through providers like Specsavers and other providers that deliver NHS contracts.
There are also a significant proportion of graduates that enter the independent and private sector, job satisfaction is just as rewarding and skills in the commercial and entrepreneurial area are further developed. A significant number of previous graduates now run or are partners of their own branches.
Opportunities are available outside the clinical arena and some of our graduates have been employed with hearing aid manufacturers and Audiology equipment manufacturers.
There are also opportunities to specialise and train further once you have graduated, in particular the ‘Scientist Training Programme’ as well as the British Academy of Audiology ‘Higher Training Scheme’.
