From the first semester we have had hands-on experiences in our clinic sessions, and we have a lot of practical, 'real' dentistry work. I would definitely recommend this degree."

Greg Chiapello

Bachelor of Speech Pathology (Honours) graduate

“I chose to study the Bachelor of Speech Pathology (Honours) at UQ because it is one of the leading programs in Australia. My experience in the simulation clinic during my studies involved a variety of areas of speech pathology including swallow assessments and language therapy for clients with aphasia. Aphasia is a neurological disorder caused by damage to the portions of the brain that are responsible for language. I enjoyed the authenticity of the way it was set up and also the ability to get online feedback from peers, clinical educators and even simulator patients. The simulation clinic is an amazing experience.”
