BMedSci Speech and Language Therapy with Foundation Year
The foundation year of the programme provides students with non-standard entry qualifications a thorough and supportive academic preparation for successful degree level study in the School of Allied Health Professions, Nursing and Midwifery. On successful completion of the foundation year, students will progress to BMedSci Speech and Language Therapy.
As well as meeting the standard Foundation Year eligibility requirements, applicants to this programme must hold a GCSE grade C/4 in English Language.
Applicants will be required to complete a DBS check before entry to level 1 of this course. Please see the BMedSci Speech and Language Therapy webpage for more information
Foundation Year: One year full-time within the Department for Lifelong Learning.
Levels 1-3: Three years full-time within the School of Allied Health Professions, Nursing and Midwifery.
Students will progress to the School of Allied Health Professions, Nursing and Midwifery after completing their foundation year, subject to meeting progression thresholds which differ across courses and departments. These will be discussed with applicants at interview. These thresholds can also be found by searching for the relevant degree course within the University's Programme Regulations Finder and viewing information relating to 'Year 0'.
All new students must obtain occupational health clearance, which may require an individual assessment. This is to ensure that you meet the fitness to practice standards detailed on the Higher Education Occupational Practitioners (HEOPS) guidance.
We offer support to students with additional needs, for example, through the Disability and Dyslexia Support Service or Student Support Services. You can find out more about the network of support services we provide. A very small number of conditions might, on health and safety grounds, affect your registration with the appropriate regulatory body and your ability to practise in certain clinical situations.
If you're offered a place, you'll need to comply with the Department of Health and Social Care mandatory immunisation requirements.
You should have at least two COVID-19 vaccinations to protect yourself and vulnerable people in your placement areas.
