Audiology coursework trains professional clinical audiologists in acoustics, psychoacoustics, and neuroscience.




Audiology is the scientific study of hearing, and hearing disorders. Audiologists are highly trained professionals dedicated to the assessment, diagnosis, and non-medical management of hearing and balance function.

The career is a rewarding one, suited to those with an interest in technology and science, but for whom working with people is important.

Audiology graduates are well-prepared for careers in public and private health care settings, or for following a career in fundamental or applied research in hearing science. Career opportunities for audiologists are excellent within Aotearoa New Zealand and around the world.
