Audiology student tells all

Totte Axelsson, 26, is a student in semester two of the audiology programme. He was a bit uncertain before his choice of programme. He had not heard much about the profession of an audiologist. So his expectations were a bit vague. He nonetheless felt that it would suit him since the programme included several subjects that he was interested in.

"I work a lot with music and have always been interested in sound. I know myself how important sound is both in a music context and to social life. Being able to help people so that they have the opportunity to function in society and are able to enjoy everything that our hearing gives us sounded interesting to me."

Totte Axelsson thinks that the best thing about the programme is the specialist knowledge acquired about hearing. Everything from how sound is created, captured by the ear, interpreted and becomes an important building block in the course of life. Despite the breadth of the programme, this is a common theme through all of the various subjects: important knowledge and understanding of hearing and its function. Although the audiology programme requires quite a lot of study, he feels that he has the opportunity to broaden his knowledge at a pace that is just right. Everything is related, the knowledge he receives in the medical component becomes important in the technical component.

"Right now, we are in a part of the programme where the link to the profession is very clear. We really get to feel what it is like to work as an audiologist. I see the future in the profession in a positive light since more and more people are suffering from hearing impairments and specialist expertise is needed."
