You'll need a degree in speech and language therapy that's approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
If you've got a degree in a science or language-based subject, you could do a 2-year fast-track postgraduate course in speech and language therapy.
You'll find it helpful to get some paid or voluntary experience in the health or care sector before you apply for a course.
You could contact the voluntary services co-ordinator at your local NHS trust for further advice.
You'll usually need:
- 2 to 3 A levels, or equivalent, for a degree
- a degree in a relevant subject for postgraduate study
