Audiology at NUS

Audiology is an exhilarating and expanding field involving the study of hearing, balance and associated disorders. Being an allied health profession, audiology is dedicated to helping individuals and their families alleviate, if not overcome the impact of hearing or balance problems.

Audiologists work with people of all ages, from newborns to elderly adults to improve their quality of life. In a clinical setting, audiologists use specialised tests to assess hearing and balance problems and recommend appropriate management. Rehabilitation often involves emerging technologies including hearing aids, cochlear implants and other assistive devices. Audiologists also work closely with other healthcare professionals to provide continuity of care for patients and their families.

As the first audiology training program in Singapore, the MSc Audiology program at NUS was established to meet the vast need for hearing services in the local population. The first intake of students graduated in 2015 and the program has since grown to provide short courses and workshops, as well as carry out hearing health research.
