Entry to the MAud is competitive, with the selection based on academic merit. Student numbers are limited to around 14 a year. Candidates must have an undergraduate grade point average of at least 5 out of 9 on UC's GPA scale (i.e. a B average), but successful candidates usually have a GPA significantly higher than this.

Successful applicants have come from a diverse range of backgrounds, so even if you are not from the health sciences, we encourage your application.

One or more courses or research may require vaccination

The final vaccination mandate ended at 11:59 pm on Monday 26 September 2022 which applied to health and disability workers. Some employers/placement sites may still require workers to be vaccinated due to health and safety. As such, some clinical placements may be restricted for those students who are not fully vaccinated.

Application deadlines and processes

The deadline for applications is 1 October 2022, however late applications may be considered until November 2022. Please contact speech-hearing-admin@canterbury.ac.nz for information.
