Clinical Work Experience

Clinical Placement is an integral part of the MSc Speech and Language Therapy (Professional Qualification). It is organized by the Practice Education Co-ordinator and takes place throughout the two years of the programme. Students will complete 150 sessions (over 500 hours) of placement, some of which take place outside of normal semester weeks.  Students will be placed in different sites around Ireland and there may be opportunities for some placements to take place outside of Ireland. There is no financial support for placement: students will need to cover their travel and accommodation costs associated with placement. Placements frequently involve considerable travel.
