Following graduation, both quickly found work as speech and language therapists. Sara focused on paediatrics in the NHS, while Afshan worked with both adult and children in the private sector and NHS. As clinicians, they both provided placements for University of Reading students.
Having experienced our MSc Speech and Language Therapy degree themselves, and then going on into clinical work. Now they are Clinical Tutors, these experiences provide them with insight into the challenges and opportunities our students might face and enables them to offer unique support.
“From my experience, I believe one of my most important roles as a Clinical Tutor is not to provide students with every answer, but to give them the confidence and skills to find the answers on their own.”
“I know from direct experience that the course can be challenging at times. But seeing how our students grow and overcome obstacles over the course of the degree is incredible. The level of development from their first module to their final exam is extraordinary and supporting them in that growth is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job.”
