How to study to become an Educational Audiologist

The only course in Europe is situated near Newbury, Berks on the Mary Hare School campus. Mary Hare is partnered with the University of Hertfordshire to offer this qualification.

CPD stand-alone modules

Teachers of deaf children and young people and clinicians may be interested in taking stand-alone educational audiology CPD modules. These are part of the PGDip programme. One module involves one residential weekend and one assignment. Taking a stand-alone module does not allow for professional registration as an educational audiologist.

MSc / PGDip Educational Studies (Educational Audiology)

All students undertake a minimum of 120 hours work-based experience in a combination of NHS Audiology Clinics, and Education-based Audiology roles, supervised by well-qualified and experienced practitioners. Practice in the workplace is based on consolidation and evaluation of skills (by both the student and their workplace mentor) which forms part of the student's clinical log and reflective portfolio. Students provide on-going critical reflection related to their skills practice and learning needs.

Practical skills training includes: pure tone audiometry, impression-taking (BSA certificate), FM balancing, hearing aid programming, room acoustics measurement and test box measurements.


Early Years training is available on the Educational Audiology Courses as embedded as part of modules below, and also as a student-chosen focus option for each module's independent study and assignment.

Becoming an Educational Audiologist has opened more avenues and doors than I ever could have done with my Teacher of the Deaf (ToD) training alone, having worked as a ToD for many years.

Educational Audiologists help to provide better outcomes for children and young people who are deaf because of:

All children and young people (CYP) who are deaf benefit from access to the enhanced knowledge and skills of an Educational Audiologist, which are unique within deaf education and clinical audiology (e.g., language development, speech discrimination, auditory processing skills development, audiological assessment, speech and room acoustics, assistive listening devices, radio aids, soundfield systems, hearing aids and cochlear implants/ implanted aids.)

Educational Audiologists focus on the interplay of listening and technology with child development and have a unique liaison between Health and Education.
