Course summary

Accredited by the Society and College of Radiographers, this course will equip you with the skills to be a highly professional radiographer. Radiography combines science, technology and patient care to provide a vital role in patient diagnosis and treatment. Radiographers use a range of different imaging techniques and sophisticated technology to produce high quality images to aid diagnosis for injury or disease as part of the multi-professional healthcare team. The career structure provides opportunities for radiographers to specialise into many areas including ultrasound, CT / MRI scanning, image reporting, teaching and management. If you are a problem solver with a keen interest in science and technology and a caring, compassionate nature, this is the course for you. Throughout the degree, your development as a learner and a practitioner are facilitated by academic and clinical teams who aim to provide a positive and encouraging learning environment for you to thrive. 50% of your time will be spend on placement, gaining invaluable clinical experience, and when on campus you will have access to dedicated facilities including two digital radiography rooms, CT imaging suite and antomage table.


The first year of your studies will cover a range of topics, including modules such as Fundamentals of Patient Centred Care, Introduction to Professional Collaborative Practice and Scientific Principles for Diagnostic Radiography. Moving into your second year will allow you to gain deeper knowledge and understanding of radiographic practices with modules such as Screening, Diagnosis and Intervention; Applied Radiography and Research Methods. Your third and final year is your opportunity to evaluate what you have learned during your course and to study more specialised modules within the field of radiography.
