Our speech pathology program will prepare you to assess and diagnose difficulties with speech, language, voice, fluency, multi-modal communication and swallowing, and enable you to provide intervention and support that is person-centred, culturally-sensitive and evidence-based. You’ll recognise the dignity of the human person and your responsibility towards the common good, and have opportunities to put your values, knowledge and skills into action with professional practice and community engagement activities in Australia and overseas.
Their voice, your choice
Choose a career that empowers others to communicate. Study speech pathology and you’ll combine community engagement opportunities with theoretical units and professional practice placements at partner institutions such as clinics, health centres, aged-care facilities, or education offices. You can also take advantage of international community engagement opportunities in countries such as Chile in South America or Nepal in Central Asia.

When you study speech pathology with us, you’ll pursue excellence in the theoretical, practical and evidence-based aspects of the management of speech, language, swallowing, voice, fluency and multimodal communication, with the aim of maximising participation in society across the lifespan. You’ll also demonstrate a commitment to the common good.
