Upon graduation, students will be professionally recognised by the College of Radiographers and will be eligable to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) to practise in the UK. City is ranked 1st in London for Medical Technology, including Radiography (Complete University Guide 2020). The course provides the physical, technological, biological and social knowledge required to work within a healthcare team and the professional skills and accreditation to practice as a radiographer. Students learn through classroom teaching, simulated practice in our clinical skills suites, and clinical placements. City has one of the best equipped radiography clinical skills suites in the UK, offering a unique environment which mirrors many of the facilities encountered whilst undertaking practice placements in the clinical environment. The course is taught by academics who are experts within the field and many of whom are active clinicians and researchers. Our curriculum concentrates on evidence based teaching and is directly influenced by the research happening within the department which is informing radiography policy and practice. We have long standing and close links with radiology departments in hospitals, the radiography profession, and industry; all of this offers a challenging yet supportive environment in which to study. Career prospects for City's Radiography graduates are excellent. Many of our students go on to work in leading hospitals in London and throughout the UK and there is also a possibility to practice internationally. 100% of our graduates are in employment or further study six months after completing the course (DLHE).
