As an accredited audiologist, you could be allowing a child to hear their parents’ voices for the first time, fitting an elderly person with a hearing aid, or helping a heavy metal musician to prevent hearing loss. Audiologists improve the quality of life for people with hearing and balance issues across the lifespan by evaluating, diagnosing, treating, or managing conditions such as tinnitus or hearing loss.
A career in audiology is rewarding, flexible and stable, with demand for working audiologists across Australia and overseas. Anyone with an interest in postgraduate health from any undergraduate degree background can pursue a Masters of Audiology, or even continue to a PhD with an audiology focus. This industry is for people who like measurable and tangible outcomes, but also those driven by a desire to help others, and those ready for an enriching and worthwhile career.
