There are various ways that you can train as an audiologist: three-year BSc programs, MSc and FDSc, so go for it! Think about what you want to do in the future and chose the right option for you. You can start to train straight from school, or leave it to later in your life. Several companies offer sponsored training positions for HCA and Foundation degree students, enabling you to work in the private sector and fit it around family life, or as a career change. For me, doing the sponsored HAC course allowed me to get married and have a mortgage. I have taught audiology students who are parents and even grandparents, so it is never too late!
