The Master in Speech and Language Therapy is a professional degree recognised across Switzerland and designed to train speech and language therapists.



The programmes combines psychology, language sciences, education, neuroscience and medicine and includes a significant hands-on clinical training component, while providing students with a solid scientific foundation through lectures and research.

The objective is two-fold: to train students in the scientific study of speech, language, human communication and related disorders and to prepare them for the primary professional activities of speech and language therapists, namely, counselling and prevention, assessment and diagnosis, support and follow-up of patients with disorders affecting the voice, speech, spoken and written language and the ability to swallow or communicate.

Students may go on exchange regardless of how many credits they have completed at the Faculty. Students may earn up to 60 credits while on exchange for one or two semesters.

This Master’s programmes enables graduates to work as speech and language therapists (the degree is recognised in Switzerland) in various settings, such as private practices, schools, specialised institutions and hospitals.
