MSc. Hearing, Balance and Communication

MSc Hearing, Balance and Communication is a postgraduate degree within the department of Audiology at UCC. If you are a Social, Medical and Allied Health Professional looking to progress your career, this may be just for you. It is the only degree of its kind in Ireland and has specifically been developed to suit busy professionals. It is a part time programme which takes place over 2 years with a hybrid delivery. Our past and current students have included participants from around Europe, making this suitable to global applicants. A combination of 4 core modules, a research project and 4 elective modules, allows students to tailor their studies to their own professional and personal interests. Attendance onsite will be 4-5 times per year, with each module taking place over 2-3 days (Thursday-Saturday).

We are currently taking applications for the academic year 2023/2024. Closing date for applications is the 30th of June, with a start date of the 11th of September. 

If you are not able to commit to a postgraduate degree, we also offer all of our modules as CPD courses through both credit bearing and non-credit bearing routes. In the academic year of 2023- 2024, we will offer a new range of CPD courses for professional development and to further enhance your career. Some of these may also be offered as hybrid (in-person and online) depending on the content. See below for the topics we will cover- more information to follow.
