    • Are you a Speech and Language Therapist interested in combining a clinical and academic career to help address the needs of underserved communities in sub-Saharan Africa? The University of Health and Allied Sciences (UHAS) is one of Ghana’s nine public universities. It launched a 4-year Bachelor of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences in 2013 – the first of its kind in the country – and has an intake of around 10 students per year.

Following graduation, students complete a one-year clinical internship before sitting a licensure exam. Upon passing this, they are able to practice as Audiologists or Speech and Language Therapist’s depending on their specialism.
