About

The Imaging (Online Learning) programme at The University of Edinburgh disseminates imaging knowledge, skills and understanding, to enable effective and efficient imaging clinically, in research and in industry. 

Overview

The Imaging (Online Learning) programme at The University of Edinburgh is flexible, intermittent, part-time, online distance learning (OLDL) programme that aims to:

  • provide an understanding of imaging theory, techniques, analysis and applications
  • develop research planning and designing skills, incorporating imaging
  • enable interpretation and analysis of relevant imaging data
  • relate imaging research to clinical applications

Career opportunities 

Clinical graduates will exit the programme with improved clinical image management skills, and will also be better able to advise companies and businesses which develop tools and techniques for their specialties, where imaging is required. For pre-clinically focused students, an imaging skill set expands academic possibilities and is more likely to assist with translational techniques necessary to bridge the preclinical and clinical sciences.

The degree will also be attractive as a preliminary qualification before undertaking career training in hospital Medical Physics (for physicists and engineers), as well as a preliminary qualification before taking a PhD or research scientist post involving medical physics, medical imaging, biomechanics in academia or industry.

Programme Structure

  • Aimed at working professionals who want to advance their knowledge through a postgraduate-level course(s), without the time or financial commitment of a full Masters, Postgraduate Diploma or Postgraduate Certificate.
  • You may take a maximum of 50 credits worth of courses over two years through our PPD scheme. We offer online credit-bearing courses which run for 11 weeks at a time. These lead to a University of Edinburgh postgraduate award of academic credit. Alternatively, after one year of taking courses you can choose to transfer your credits and continue on to studying towards a higher award on a Masters, Postgraduate Diploma or Postgraduate Certificate programme.
  • Although PPD courses have various start dates throughout a year you may only start a Masters, Postgraduate Diploma or Postgraduate Certificate programme in the month of September.
