Become specialized in stuttering and cluttering with ESS, the European Stuttering Specialization course.

ESS Course

The aim of the course is to provide speech-language therapists advanced knowledge and skills to achieve a high standard of competency in the specialist practice area of stuttering and cluttering.

This specialization course is unique in Europe and beyond because it brings together the expertise and viewpoints of numerous EU and non-EU specialists in a clear and overarching framework. This multidimensional approach ensures the educational standards of the course and the professional competencies of the graduates.

Moreover, this course provides an extra European dimension by creating a sphere of exchange and integration among the participating students and faculty members, affecting both students and faculty. It stimulates them to look across the borders and helps them realise the impact of an increasingly international EU environment.


Interested in applying?

The specialization course is open to candidates with a bachelor or master degree in speech-language therapy (or related degree) who are qualified to work as a speech-language therapist in their home country.
