Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
This subject covers a group of related subjects, like audiology and speech science. The most common job for graduates from this group is speech therapy, and about a quarter 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). 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. Graduates from last year in this subject went into a surprisingly wide range of jobs – but were largely in health or childcare roles.
