The Hearing Sciences (Hons) course at Anglia Ruskin University is delivered through a blend of online learning and residential sessions to give you a flexible, practical and career-enhancing learning experience. As a guide, we suggest you plan for five to seven hours of online study per week when you're not attending a residential.


During the Hearing Sciences (Hons) course at Anglia Ruskin University, you will study using our Learning management system, CANVAS, and there are also seven three-or-four-day residential weeks between September and April. (For part-time students, these sessions will be spread over two academic years.) You will attend both class and lab-based taught sessions with fellow students, and engage in student-led discussions and practical assignments.


Our Employability Service is here to help give you the best chance of landing the job you want. We’ll help you improve your skills and bulk up your CV to improve your career prospects. As a distance learning student, you’ll still benefit from help and advice on CV writing, interview techniques, job hunting, and general careers advice.

After graduating from our BSc (Hons) Hearing Sciences you might choose to apply for a postgraduate research award. 

Our academic staff have a wealth of research experience across a wide range of areas related to hearing science, as well as disability research in general. They have a history of publication in high-impact journals and have attracted grants from research councils, charitable trusts and industry. As a university, we have firm links with Addenbrooke’s Hospital, and international collaborations in countries including Sweden, Finland, India, Portugal, Iran and China.
