Why study Hearing Sciences?

  • The WHO predicts a rapid growth in the need for hearing related research and service delivery requirements over the coming years. There are currently around 446 million people with disabling hearing loss globally. Without urgent intervention there will be 630 million people living with disabling hearing loss by the year 2030, with that number expected to grow to over 900 million by 2050 (World Health Organisation, 2018)
  • Gain the cognitive skills to demonstrate mastery of theoretical knowledge and to reflect critically on theory and professional practice or scholarship, as well as the cognitive, technical and creative skills to investigate, analyse and synthesise complex information, problems, concepts and theories and to apply established theories in practice.
