La Trobe University Audiology School Graduate Entry


La Trobe University’s Master of Clinical Audiology Overview

La Trobe’s Audiology program aims to provide students with the skills and knowledge to prevent hearing, tinnitus and balance disorders, and to assess and treat people who have hearing, tinnitus and balance disorders. The course combines pre-clinical and clinical study, integrating theory and practice.

Demand for audiologists is expected to increase significantly over coming years due to a numbers of factors including: the ageing population, improved and compulsory screening of infants for hearing loss, improved technology and increased consumer demand for diagnostic and rehabilitative audiological services.
