Degrees related to Speech, Hearing and Phonetic Sciences
Graduate Research Degrees
The Division of Psychology and Language Sciences undertakes world-leading research and teaching in mind, behaviour and language. It brings together researchers in a range of disciplines such as cognition, neuroscience, linguistics, education, communication, medicine, health, phonetics and development - to understand both basic and applied problems. Our work attracts staff and students from around the world. Together, they create an outstanding and vibrant environment for both study and research, taking advantage of cutting-edge resources such as a behavioural neuroscience laboratory, a centre for brain imaging, and extensive laboratories for research in speech and language, perception and cognition. Our research is funded by by UK Research Councils, charities such as the Wellcome Trust, government departments, the EU and the NHS. More information about research degrees.
These UCL degree programmes contain teaching provided by the Department. Unless indicated, all are one-year full-time courses for existing graduates starting in September each year.

The CLEAR project aims to create a centre of excellence in tools and techniques for the cleaning of poor-quality audio recordings of speech.
CochSim is a dynamic simulation of the time and frequency analysis performed by the ear. Sound signals such as sinewaves, pulse trains, sawtooth waves and vowels can be fed into an auditory filterbank and the output monitored in a moving animated display. The program shows the vibration of the oval window and the basilar membrane, the haircell activity against filter frequency and time, and an average excitation pattern across the cochlea.
WASP is a simple program to record speech signals and to display a spectrogram and pitch track.
