Audiology students from across the UK flocked to Aston University for the second audiology specific careers event. There was a range of exhibitors from hearing aid manufacturers, charities, professional bodies, registration bodies, recruiting agencies, the NHS and the independent sector.
The theme of the day was to provide students with an awareness of the variety of routes available upon graduation and further in their careers, after embedding their core skills and knowledge. A range of breakout sessions included guest speakers presenting paediatrics, balance and hearing therapy talks, as well as research workshops. Further sessions included working abroad, mentoring, CPD, the STP process and more.
This was a fantastic networking experience for everybody involved and gave the audiology students the opportunity to mix and discuss their training with each other. Feedback from the event has been very positive, and Aston look forward to planning next year’s event.
