To train and work as an audiologist, you will need to complete two years of postgraduate training at the University of Auckland leading to a Master of Audiology degree, and one year of further supervised clinical practice leading to a Certificate of Clinical Competence awarded by the
New Zealand Audiological Society. This is normally undertaken while employed in an audiology clinic.
New Zealand Audiological Society
The future of the job market in hearing sciences appears excellent. Greater public awareness of early diagnosis of hearing disorders, an aging population, and concern over occupationally induced hearing loss combine to form a bright future for audiology professionals. This is particularly the case for audiology researchers and academics, as there is a severe international shortage of professionals in these areas.
New Zealand audiologists have the option of working in a number of settings, including
public hospital audiology, private audiology clinics, deaf and hearing impaired
education centres, Cochlear Implant Programme, product support for hearing aid manufacturers,
hospital administration or as a Government policy adviser.
Each year Siemens Hearing Instruments NZ Ltd provides a scholarship on the basis of academic merit and financial need for one
audiology student undertaking the Master of Audiology degree.
Quota International Papakura Inc
Each year the Papakura branch of Quota International provides scholarships to students undertaking the Master of Audiology degree on the basis of academic merit and commitment to a career in audiology in New Zealand.
