This intensive full-time programme offers students a solid theoretical background in normal human communication and its disorders as well as in related disciplines of medicine, psychology, English and Cantonese linguistics and hearing sciences.

Speech therapists assess and treat individuals with a wide range of speech and language disorders, swallowing disorders and other communication difficulties. Speech therapists work with individuals of all ages in various settings such as hospitals, schools, pre-school centres and private clinics.

This programme has obtained the full endorsement status by the Hong Kong Institute of Speech Therapists. Graduates are eligible for membership of the Hong Kong Institute of Speech Therapists and are qualified to practise as registered speech therapists accredited by the Department of Health in Hong Kong, and also eligible for membership of the Hong Kong Association of Speech Therapists. The degree is equivalent in content to similar courses in Australia and New Zealand. Graduates are also highly suitable for post-graduate studies in this or allied disciplines. 

 

Programme Features

  • The curriculum employs a student-centered, “Translational Learning” approach.
  • The medium of classwork is English with a strong emphasis on active participation, problem-solving and presentations in small discussion groups.
  • In the final year, all students are required to complete a research project.
  • During the course, students are required to complete over 300 hours of supervised clinical practicum. The clinical programme is conducted predominantly in Cantonese. This programme therefore offers students a unique bilingual education and training. 
  • A strong emphasis is placed on students’ ability to integrate theory and clinical practice, and on their development of the necessary interpersonal and basic research skills.
