This part-time course aims to develop your skills in radiographic reporting and other core practices associated with radiography. Due to our optional approach to learning you will get the opportunity to choose modules that best suit your needs so that your learning is relevant for you. Our optional modules focus on areas from Abdomen Radiographic Reporting to Appendicular and Axial Radiographic Reporting

You will also have the opportunity to work in our dedicated general X-Ray room with PACS system for both image viewing experience and for experimental purposes. As well as a dedicated X-ray space we also have dosimetry equipment, a radiography training room using 3D interactive simulation to include Shaderware computers and dedicated ultrasound equipment available for research opportunities and to enhance your learning.

Your learning will be supported and delivered by experienced researchers and academics alongside clinical experts. Radiologists and clinical radiographers support each of the clinical modules ensuring a high degree of current and relevant clinical knowledge is applied alongside the requirement for questioning practice. You will also be assigned a designated personal tutor who will support you throughout your studies.

You will also be part of a group of students who come from a variety of clinical backgrounds which also enhances your learning experience and you will be encouraged to share ideas and experiences.
