Visit the official programme website for more information


The Medical Ultrasound MSc course from Imperial College London  is both academic and vocational in nature, and is the only MSc of this type to offer a clinical attachment as part of the course.

As an academic degree, it does not provide automatic qualification to practise as a sonographer, and national examinations may be required to achieve this.

Nevertheless, the programme follows the core British Society of Echocardiography syllabus and prepares any future candidate for the successful completion of the national examinations.

Each is speciality is run independently in its respective department. You will have exposure to the real life workings of a department and to patients, whom you’ll get hands-on experience with through placement with Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.


  • The MSc in Medical Ultrasound is recognised as an important qualification for people who would like to pursue a career in Medical Ultrasound.
  • Many students go on to study for an MD(Res) or PhD, while most of the medically qualified students return to clinical practice.
  • Others have gone into a wide range of careers, including specialised sonographers, physiologists, and other healthcare professionals in the NHS or abroad.
