Students' expectations of the key skills and knowledge they acquire and how their perceptions of these change during the four year period of their speech and language therapy (SLT) degree programme are explored. This is important because students are central to the teaching and learning process so their expectations of learning have to be taken into account in order to best help them to achieve the required learning outcomes. Over 100 De Montfort University (DMU) SLT under-graduate students from the four years were surveyed by questionnaire. The research findings are discussed to examine the significance of differences between and within year cohorts. The outcomes of this research will provide a basis for recommendations for DMU and other universities' SLT programmes, and for the improvement of student learning guidance.
