The Centre was formed in August 2004, as part of the newly established School for Applied Community and Health Studies, a coalition of departments interested in applied research questions.
Research and teaching within the Centre focuses on hearing and balance related issues, with a particular interest in rehabilitation and the professional development of people concerned with audiological services.
In 2012 following the closure of the School for Applied Community Health Studies, the Centre relocated to the Graduate School of Education in Berkeley Square.
It currently offers Audiology programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate level and undertakes research projects and continuing professional development training for clinical staff within Audiology and related disciplines. However the Centre is planned to close in 2014.
The Centre is located in Berkeley Square in the main university precinct. Search for 'Hearing and Balance' to find our location using the interactive map.
