Entry Requirements - Body

Entry requirements

Admission to the Master’s degree is based on the evaluation of your ability to undertake postgraduate study in a specialist field of inquiry or professional practice. The primary basis for selection is on academic merit, however consideration may also be given to other factors.

The MAud does not require prior training in Speech and Language Therapy. You should have either:

  • a Speech and Language Pathology bachelor's degree; or
  • any bachelor’s degree with relevant coursework (eg, Arts, Engineering such as Electrical and Electronic or Mechanical, Health Sciences, Science, or Teaching and Learning); or
  • been admitted with equivalent qualifications to the above by the University.

Students with a different undergraduate background to that of the above, and with a strong achievement record, will still be considered. All students must be approved for study.

If English is your additional language, you are also required to meet UC's English language requirements.

For the full entry requirements, see the Regulations for the Master of Audiology or use the admission requirements checker.
