Working in the UQ Speech Pathology Simulation Clinic

Speech pathology focuses on the management of communication and/or swallowing difficulties. Communication problems can occur in the areas of speech, language, voice, fluency (stuttering), hearing or literacy.

Within a “typical workplace environment,” UQ speech pathology students get hands-on practice during their time in the speech pathology simulation clinic. Like real life, students can assess patients with communication and swallowing difficulties in a hospital setting. Simulation clinics offer a number of benefits to the students, including learning to practice new skills, the opportunity for repetition of skill development, and the opportunity to gain a broad range of feedback to practice those skills before they need to use them in a real workplace environment.

About the UQ Speech Pathology program

The UQ speech pathology program is an accelerated program for students who have already completed an undergraduate degree. The program 2.5 years in length and will prepare graduates for a career in speech path across any of the diverse areas in which speech pathologists practice, such as education, health or private practice.

UQ speech pathology ranked number one in Australia by students

The UQ Speech Pathology program has been ranked number one Australia wide by students for teaching quality and educational experience.

UQ speech pathology ranked number one in Australia by students

OzTREKK student Mackenzie enjoyed her time in the UQ speech pathology program

More than 178,000 students from Australian universities and non-university higher-education institutions rated their experiences in the 2016 federal Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) survey.

More than 94% of speech pathology students at UQ were satisfied with the quality of their “entire educational experience” and over 97% were satisfied with the “quality of teaching.”

The impressive results continued with students ranking the program number two on the skill development scale (student satisfaction 92.9%), and the learning resources scale (student satisfaction 94.7%).

I was surprised by the amount of real clinical expertise integrated into the learning environment. Not only does the course offer clinics each semester for the students, but the teachers also use their real clinical experience and expertise to promote learning and to allow students to think through clinical situations they may experience one day.”

OzTREKK student Mackenzie Gunn

UQ Speech Pathology Head Dr Nerina Scarinci said the results were a testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire speech pathology team, including course coordinators, lecturers, tutors, and clinical educators, who all work together to ensure an exceptional experience for students.

“The UQ speech pathology team provide the best of both worlds for students, with expert knowledge and experience in both research and clinical practice,” Dr Scarinci said.

Final-year speech pathology student Monica Gehrke said she has found the lecturers at UQ to be experts in the fields they lecture in and passionate about the content they teach.

“Many lecturers provide insight and examples from their first-hand experiences in an area, so students are assured that the information being taught is highly relevant and applicable,” Ms Gehrke said.

The variety of opportunities provided to students include clinical placements from first semester, simulated learning opportunities in paediatrics, acute care, swallowing, and voice disorders, overseas placements, and interprofessional courses.

Second-year speech pathology student Isabella Loeskow moved from Bundaberg to live in one of the colleges at the St Lucia campus when she began her studies.

“Moving from my family and friends in Bundaberg to study speech pathology in Brisbane was a daunting but exciting move. I’m thoroughly enjoying my studies and in particular the placement opportunities.

“As I’m interested in working with children it was great to be able to do a full day placement at a school last year to get an understanding of what’s involved in this area of speech pathology.

“This year, we work for half a day every week in the UQ clinics. We see patients with a variety of experiences and this provides us with an opportunity to see what it would be like working in the real world as a speech pathologist.”

As one of Australia’s leading health and rehabilitation educators, the school has internationally recognised and award-winning teaching and research staff, inspiring alumni and high-quality students produced every year.

School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences Head Professor Louise Hickson congratulated academic and professional staff on their hard work to deliver quality course structures and exceptional teaching standards.

“We are very lucky to have a team who work closely together and thoroughly enjoy sharing their energy and enthusiasm for speech pathology to the next generation of clinicians.”

From Canada to Brisbane: a UQ Speech Pathology student offers advice

Former OzTREKK student Mackenzie Gunn will soon be in her second year in the Master of Speech Pathology Studies program at the University of Queensland. Many Canadian students are in the midst of exploring their study options: Study in Canada, or study abroad? How do you know which option is right for you?

Even though she’s swamped with coursework and clinical practice, the Orono, Ontario native has kindly offered to describe her program and her time at UQ in order to help future students who are interested in studying speech pathology in Australia!

The reason behind my choices

I have always had a passion to work with children and towards the area of teaching and helping others. I was drawn to speech pathology because you get to work one on one with patients to treat their specific needs and aid them with vital life skills.

Initially, I chose the University of Queensland because of its strong affiliation with Canadian certifications; however, after researching, what I really liked about the university is the design of their program, as it is five semesters opposed to four. This allows students to have a summer break and recharge in between semesters, which is lovely.

Incredible program, incredible university

I absolutely love the program so far! From second semester onward the courses are specific and job related with aids for future reference. The staff aims to prepare you for the workplace in the various areas of speech pathology.

I was surprised by the amount of real clinical expertise integrated into the learning environment. Not only does the course offer clinics each semester for the students, but the teachers also use their real clinical experience and expertise to promote learning and to allow students to think through clinical situations they may experience one day.

Smile for the camera!

The campus is absolutely gorgeous! It has maintained an older charm, but classrooms are up to date and functional for the teachers’ and students’ needs. All of your lectures are recorded and available online to re-watch in case you missed anything in class. Additionally, all of the classroom sizes are true to the number of students; thus for the program they are relatively small, which is ideal for learning.

After graduation… and clinical hours

Eventually, I plan to return to Canada. The UQ Speech Pathology School is dedicated to ensuring that Canadian students meet the hour requirements for Canada, as they are higher than Australian requirements. It is easy to get fully accredited in Canada: you just have to write and pass an exam. It is very important that you keep track of these hours throughout your program as the Canadian hours (or provincial hours) differ from Australian hours!

Time to settle in and explore

During my first year, I lived just off campus at Unilodge@St.Lucia and paid $360 a week. This was all-inclusive (i.e., internet, hydro, social events) and less than two minutes to the main building for speech pathology students. OzTREKK was very helpful in finding me this apartment, as it was one of their suggestions and I would recommend it or one similar for the first six months to a year for pure convenience and ease while you get to know the city. This was very convenient and a lovely apartment.

I have recently moved to the suburb of Milton and pay $230 a week plus utilities. Milton is close to the city, has many restaurants, stores, and bus options. It is a great location between school and downtown. Domain.com.au and rental.com.au are both excellent sites to use if you are looking for an apartment.

Australia is very diverse and different from Canada in so many ways, but similar at the same time, and it still feels homey. Brisbane always has festivals, markets, and various restaurants around the city to explore each weekend. My favourite part about my experience, besides my program, is that I am experiencing so many new things I never thought I would. Whether it is traveling somewhere new, visiting a new restaurant, taking the City Cat (ferry) or being able to go to the beach regularly—it is a different way of life from Canada and a great experience!

My advice for anyone considering studying in Australia

The best advice is to go in with an open mind! It will be a great adventure—make sure you are well prepared for it. Give yourself lots of time: get your visa in order, research an area you would like to live in, update yourself on Canadian requirements and research the city for fun things to do. You’re there to study, but you also have to make it a home for the time you’re there, so get to know the people in your cohort and the city.

Make sure you have a balance between school and other things such as friends, sports, or even television. At first it is strange being away from your friends and family, but there are many other Canadians, along with other international students, who are doing the same thing. It is very easy to bond and support one another because of this. Build a support network in Australia that you can count on and do fun things with so you can immerse yourself and make a home in Australia while you are there.

Everyone enters into this experience very differently, but make the most of it! Australia is amazing and Brisbane is a great city to live in. It is a big city, but small enough that it still feels homey. You won’t be disappointed that you made the choice to study at the University of Queensland.

“UQ is known as a global leader for research and they’re doing very exciting things in speech pathology. I chose UQ knowing that it’s strong research foundation and placement opportunities would prepare me for life as a clinician. I’ve had the opportunity to interact with real speech clients under the supervision of a clinical educator and my professors are always more than happy to give me tips to use with my clients in clinic. Applying my theoretical classroom knowledge to clinical situations has given me invaluable skills that I will definitely use when I start practicing as a speech pathologist.”

OzTREKK student offers tips for future UQ speech pathology students

All of us at OzTREKK love to keep in touch with our former students! They are a great source of information for future OzTREKK students who are considering studying in Australia. We’ve always kept in touch with our students long after they’ve arrived in Australia and begun their programs.

UQ Speech Pathology School

Passport = your ticket to ride

We’ve recently been in contact with a former OzTREKK student who is now studying the Master of Speech Pathology Studies at the University of Queensland. Melissa Paulgaard offered to help us out this time, and she has some great tips for future UQ speech path students! You can also follow her blog Live, Love, Speech—she’s got tons of pics and great stories!

Why did you choose to study in Australia and at UQ?

I chose to study in Australia for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I had previously completed a semester abroad in the Gold Coast at Bond University and fell in love with Australia! Adding travel and school together is ultimately a dream come true! I chose to study at UQ because of its amazing reputation and wonderful speech pathology program. A professor from Bond Uni was the first to tell me of the program and she couldn’t speak more highly of UQ. Her influence, along with my previous studying overseas experience, brought me to the conclusion of at least applying! Now, here I am, and it’s sunny and +26 outside!

What are your likes and dislikes about the program?

Likes:

  • Small in size (my cohort has 28 students)
  • Uses the most current and available research in both lecture and clinic
  • Application of knowledge is seen across contexts (lecture and clinics)
  • Knowledge is learned and immediately exercised in clinical
  • Professionalism is taught and instilled
  • Guest speakers frequently do presentations and it is a great insight into their journey with a speech and/or language difficulty
  • The UQ speech pathology staff are exceptional. They go above and beyond to ensure your success in the program.

Dislikes:

  • The crazy amount of paperwork required! It’s a bit excessive but, must be completed. Our cohort was a pilot project for this new online submissions portal and in my opinion, it is more of a hassle than a convenience.

Overall, the program is extremely fast paced and you must be able to keep up and stay on top of all your work. Dedication is key if you plan on applying and choosing this program.

How does a typical day go?

From last semester to this semester a typical day has changed drastically. Depending on your courses and elective choice, each person in the program will have a slightly different schedule. That being said, this semester I spend one day a week in clinic (gaining that practical knowledge) and the rest of time I am in lectures and tutorials. A typical start is 8 a.m. with classes finishing on average around 4 p.m.

How can future students better prepare for moving to/studying in Australia?

Future students can prepare for moving/studying in Australia simply by having a positive attitude and an open mind. Moving across the world is not easy, but it is rewarding if you immerse yourself in the culture and all that your university of choice has to offer. Asking questions and contacting previous individuals who have walked in your shoes is also a very good idea. I am sure my fellow international students would agree that the transition was made much easier together and with the help of previous students. Australia is laid-back, friendly, and full of opportunities for new adventures and unexpected friendships!

I have some tips for OzTREKK students if they plan to attend the University of Queensland:

UQ Speech Pathology School

First and foremost, the immunizations are extremely important to complete and can be done in Canada ahead of time. OzTREKK was great in informing me of the list of immunizations and courses required; however, paperwork or proof of immunizations are required for each immunization and any courses required (such as CPR and First Aid).

It should also be noted that they are generally no longer accepting the Canadian First Aid requirement so it should be advised to students that this will need to be completed in Australia (this happened to 5 out of 6 Canadians in my cohort, including myself). In any post graduate programs this is a pass/fail requirement and is therefore, important.

Secondly, completing the Tertiary Transportation Card (TTC) form ahead of time will save tons of money when it comes to transport. You cannot get a student concession transportation card without holding a TTC card. More information can be found on this website: http://translink.com.au/tickets-and-fares/concessions/tertiary-transport-card.

If at all possible, students should fill this form out before moving to Australia—the sooner the better.

 Canadian vs Australian

  • whole wheat – wholemeal
  • cantaloupe – rock melon
  • arugula – rocket
  • fries – chips
  • cookie – biscuit
  • peppers – capsicums
  • Milk is not labeled like ours: skim, 1%, 2%, but rather as lite, full cream, thickened cream—I still can’t figure the milk situation out.
  • Cheese—orange cheddar cheese does not exist here! All their cheese is white!
  • Lamb and veal are super popular here, whereas it is more common to eat beef, pork or chicken in Canada.
  • “Barbies” (BBQ) are common over here and they have a sausage (tastes like a breakfast sausage) with a piece of white bread wrapped around it (so odd). Hot dog or hamburger buns are uncommon.
  • Pickles are nearly non-existent.
  • Vegemite here is like our peanut butter; it’s a spread on toast for breakfast and to me is like eating salt on toast.
  • BYOB—In Australia, restaurants allow you to bring your own booze to enjoy with your meal!

UQ speech pathology expert receives international award

A leading University of Queensland researcher has been awarded the prestigious Robin Tavistock Award in recognition of her outstanding contribution to the field of the language disorder aphasia.

Study speech pathology at the University of Queensland

UQ Centre for Clinical Research Excellence in Aphasia Rehabilitation Director Professor Linda Worrall was presented the award by Henrietta, the Dowager Duchess of Bedford, England, at UQ’s St Lucia campus.

The Duchess said the UQ Speech Pathology Professor had inspired and influenced practitioners through her teaching, research and example.

“It is not uncommon these days for science and research to lose touch with the human context, to ignore the impact of a condition on the patient and the family,” the Duchess said.

“Professor Worrall has done the opposite and has proved that this need not, and should not, be the case.

“Professor Worrall has developed and evaluated new integrated approaches to managing and improving not only the aphasic condition, but also its many associated consequences.

“She has been a pioneer in ensuring that the client is at the centre of all that is done. This has influenced the perception and work of others.”

The Duchess is the widow of Robin Tavistock, the 14th Duke of Bedford, who founded The Tavistock Trust for Aphasia.

The trust presents the annual award to an inspirational person or group who has made a significant contribution to the field of aphasia.

Aphasia affects the spoken and written word, such as a person’s ability to talk, read, write and understand the spoken word, and can occur after stroke, traumatic brain injury or brain cancer.

School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences Head Professor Louise Hickson congratulated Professor Worrall on her outstanding achievement.

“The Robin Tavistock Award is for an individual who is inspirational and has made a major difference in aphasia across the world, and Professor Worrall is certainly a worthy recipient,” Professor Hickson said.
