Our Diagnostic Radiography BSc will equip you to use technology, such as X-ray, ultrasound, CT and MRI scanning, to make high-quality clinical images of the internal structure and workings of the body in order to detect and monitor disease and the effects of trauma. You will follow a rigorous education programme, where you will acquire broad experience in diagnosing and assessing patients with a variety of problems, disorders and injuries. We have recently invested £1.8 million in our simulation facilities, which now include two fully functioning ceiling-suspended X-ray tubes, a mobile X-ray machine and mobile image intensifier, as well as two ultrasound machines. These allow us to simulate most areas of general radiographic practice and enhance your learning before your clinical placements. In year 1, our interprofessional foundation programme will introduce you to the biomedical basics underpinning health science. Alongside this you will learn about the specifics of radiography. In year 2 you will start to develop your practical skills in a practice placement setting. In the final year, you will integrate your knowledge and practical skills in learning to critically evaluate your radiographic practice, essential to a career in radiography. You will also complete a research project on a relevant topic of your choosing. This course gives you the opportunity to develop the full attributes, skills and knowledge required of a diagnostic radiographer in the changing healthcare environment. It prepares you for a range of career pathways, including clinical specialisation, management, teaching and research when you graduate. You can also choose to carry on with your radiography studies at postgraduate certificate, diploma and Master’s level. This course is taught in partnership with Kingston University, which will provide you with an expansive, multi-faculty experience alongside the health science expertise offered by St George’s.
