The Bachelor of Speech Pathology (Honours) from University of Adelaide equips you to diagnose and treat conditions across the full scope of speech pathology practice; speech and language, swallowing, fluency, voice and multimodal communication. 


Our courses have an emphasis on inter-professional and culturally responsive practice and the Speech Pathology (Honours) from University of Adelaide facilitates the development of transferrable skills through real-world learning experiences.

In over 800 hours of clinical based training, you’ll have the opportunity to work with children and adults of all ages in public and private health, community, disability, education and aged-care settings. With many of the courses taught by certified practicing speech pathologists, the degree places an emphasis on real-world experience. 

You’ll gain high-level knowledge and skills in:

  • head and neck anatomy and neurophysiology
  • speech and language development, linguistics and phonetics, motor speech, aphasia, cognition and swallowing
  • current public health and justice system topics
  • working with culturally and linguistically diverse populations, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities
  • evidence-based, person-centred care.

You’ll regularly access our purpose-built training facilities and state-of-the-art simulation suites—among Australasia’s most advanced. In addition, you’ll benefit from collaborative learning with key complementary disciplines: physiotherapy and occupational therapy.

From late third year, you’ll choose one of two streams—research* or industry—and undertake a major project. Research will hone your skills in developing new knowledge; industry focuses on integrating research into practice.
