A professional training programme to qualify as a clinical audiologist in New Zealand.
This research-based programme is recognised by the New Zealand Audio logical Society (NZAS).
Becoming an audiologist involves the completion of the two-year masters programme, followed by one further year of supervised clinical practice, leading to a Certificate of Clinical Competence provided by the NZAS. This is normally undertaken while employed in an audiology clinic.
Facilities such as the University's Hearing and Tinnitus Clinic and The Oticon Foundation Hearing Education Centre provide excellent opportunities for clinical training and continuing education for practising audiologists.
This is a 240 point research-based programme that consists of two parts:
Core courses in auditory neuroscience, diagnostic audiology, clinical otolaryngology and hearing aids for the impaired (120 points)
Clinical practicum with emphasis on paediatric audiology (30 points)
Completion of a thesis (90 points)
Where could this programme take you?
Graduates have developed the necessary academic knowledge, research and clinical experience to practice audiology at entry-level. Graduates may work as clinicians in the public or private sector or apply to pursue doctoral study.
