University Courses

alt

There area number of university courses throughout Australia which offer entry-level training for speech pathologists.  Courses may be an undergraduate (Bachelor) or graduate entry (Masters) degree. See Speech Pathology Australia's position statement concerning altDual Entry to the Profession.

The Federal Government of Australia, Department of Education and the Department of Employment recognises Speech Pathology Australia as the professional body representing speech pathologists in Australia and for their role in assessing qualifications required for practice in Australia.

Speech Pathology Australia has the further important role of accrediting university programs that offer training courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The Competency Based Occupational Standards for Speech Pathologists (CBOS 2011) details the knowledge, skills and attributes required for graduate entry into the profession of speech pathology. All entry level degree programs in Australia, whether undergraduate or post graduate, are assessed to the same CBOS 2011 standards in the accreditation process. University speech pathology programs that are accredited by Speech Pathology Australia have demonstrated that their graduates have attained CBOS entry level competencies and are thus eligible for practising membership to Speech Pathology Australia.

Courses are invited to undergo initial accreditation or re-accreditation evaluation.  New courses are encouraged to complete accreditation prior to the graduation of their first cohort of students.  (See below for new courses who have initiated an accreditation evaluation).
