About

On completion of the course students will possess an understanding for the broader framework of perception, developmental and physiological psychology, the roles they play in hearing, and appreciate theoretical principles underpinning audiometric assessment and rehabilitation techniques. Students also choose to complement the core knowledge in audiometry and psychology with a biological, linguistic or applied/professional focus. Additional areas can then be covered as determined by the needs of the student.

The Bachelor of Audiometry aims to provide theoretical knowledge in perception, development and assessment, to complement and enhance the practical knowledge required for the measurement of hearing. Students also have the opportunity to focus on technical/biological aspects of hearing through Bioscience units, or a conceptual/theoretical focus through Linguistics units, or an applied/professional focus through Health units.

Bachelor of Audiometry students will acquire knowledge that enhances their practice as audiometrists, plus give them the opportunity for future study in either audiology or psychology.
