Booking process

Places are limited and priority will be offered to final year speech and language therapy students. The delegate fee is £10 inc VAT for RCSLT members and non-members. This rate includes lunch, refreshments and materials.  

To ensure that access to places is equitable, and that as many universities as possible are represented on the day, we are inviting each of the 18 universities offering speech and language therapy courses to nominate up to eight students to book onto the event as part of the first stage of registrations. 

Any remaining places will go on general sale to final year students from early November (subject to availability). Full details about how to book will be published on this page as soon as they become available.
