Diagnostic Radiography St George's, University of London


The Diagnostic Radiography BSc course will equip you to use technology, such as X-Ray, Ultrasound, CT and MRI, 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.

This course is taught in partnership with Kingston University. You'll benefit from a large, multifaculty experience combined with the health science expertise offered by St George’s, University of London.

You will follow a rigorous education programme in hospitals, where you will acquire broad experience in the diagnosis and assessment of patients who present a variety of problems, disorders and injuries. Substantial emphasis will be placed on clinical reasoning and the evaluation of practice.

In year one you participate in our interprofessional foundation programme at St George’s, introducing you to the biomedical basics underpinning health science, and receive discipline-specific radiography education.

In year two you are introduced to practice and given the opportunity to apply your knowledge and skills in a practice placement setting.

In the final year, the focus is on integrating your knowledge and practice skills. You will develop skills of critically evaluating your radiographic practice for your future career. You also complete a research project on a radiography related topic of your own choice.
