Healthcare science

Overview
The role of the healthcare scientist sits at the forefront of the medical profession, making a vital difference to the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions. Audiologists perform a wide range of hearing-related clinical procedures and can specialise in specific areas such as auditory rehabilitation, cochlear implants or tinnitus.

Why study BSc Healthcare Science (Audiology) at Middlesex University?
This course will provide you with the knowledge skills and practical experience to work as a professional healthcare scientist in audiology. Audiologists work with patients of all ages, executing specialist healthcare procedures associated with hearing including identifying and assessing hearing and balance function and recommending and providing appropriate rehabilitation and management.

Audiologists often develop a special expertise in one area, such as, paediatrics, adult auditory rehabilitation, tinnitus, auditory rehabilitation, cochlear implants, bone anchored hearing devices or balance assessment and rehabilitation.

Developed in response to the Department of Health's Modernising Scientific Careers programme (aimed at training expert NHS Healthcare Scientists), this course will enable you to provide the highest standards of patient-centred care and will enhance your understanding and confidence in executing specialist audiology procedures.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This subject covers a group of related subjects, like audiology, speech therapy and degrees associated with language development. Speech therapy dominates and most graduates in this group go into jobs as speech therapists. About a fifth had studied audiology - there are not many audiology graduates each year in the UK, and they usually go on to jobs as — you guessed it — audiologists (mostly in hospitals but increasingly on the high street). Speech science or therapy graduates often go straight into speech therapy jobs when they graduate, although you don’t absolutely have to be a speech therapist if you take the course. There's a demand for graduates from all these courses and prospects are good.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Courses like this are more usually taken at postgraduate level - very few students take one of these degrees as a first degree. There isn't a great deal of reliable information on the employment prospects for these graduates so bear that in mind when you review the stats. Students tend to go on to further study or pursue jobs within the healthcare sector, but it might be a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what previous graduates from your chosen subject went on to do.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
