DESCRIPTION

The programme has been designed by the Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), according to the criteria set by the British Health and Care Professional Council (HCPC) and the Royal College of Speech & Language Therapists (RCSLT), based on which the Speech Therapy academic programmes are accredited. Its aim is to prepare students to practice the speech therapy profession, which is concerned with the management of disorders of language, speech, fluency, voice, communication and swallowing in children and adults. The role of a speech and language therapist is to identify problems and work with the client to optimise communication. The programme places special emphasis on independent learning and on combining theoretical knowledge with practical application. It includes a compulsory practice placement of approximately 700 hours, both in educational and clinical contexts.

This is a 4-year programme, with the first two years being taught and assessed in Greek and the remaining two being taught and assessed in English (except for clinical practice and phonology & phonetics modules that are taught and assessed in Greek). The programme consists of 30 and 60 credit modules. A substantial part of the curriculum (approximately 700 hours) is delivered an assessed on professional practice in various clinical and educational contexts, both for children and adults.
