The MSc Radiography has been designed to provide radiographers with advanced theoretical knowledge to enhance their clinical skills.
Radiography in the School of Healthcare Sciences is accredited by the Society and College of Radiographers, and the skills you can obtain are transferable to all NHS Trusts and are recognised overseas.
This course aims to expand your knowledge in areas such as image appreciation, radiographic reporting and mammography and many other practices associated with radiography.
It also aims to equip you to meet the ever-changing needs of this fast-developing sector, and a high volume of course content will be delivered by experienced radiologists and clinical specialists. You will also have ample opportunity to work in clinical settings with plenty of hands-on experience.
You will complete modules totalling 120 M-level credits to be eligible for an exit award of a Postgraduate Diploma. All students complete a compulsory research module (30 credits), which is also available by distance learning.
The modules are those considered to be of relevance to the practising radiographer and other allied health professionals engaged with imaging. Theoretical and clinical practice elements combine in order to optimise service delivery, enhance clinical skills and improve the overall management of the patient.
Full-time students undertake all four taught modules during one academic year, while part-time students undertake the taught modules over two years. If you successfully complete sufficient modules, you are able to proceed to the dissertation stage. If successful you will be eligible for the award of a Master of Science degree.
Applicants are required to undertake 2 radiography modules as a minimum to achieve the award.
Additional free-standing non-profession-specific modules are available to complement the profession-specific modules.
Students will have access to an imaging suite with a computed radiography system and PACS.
For a list of modules for the FULL-TIME route, please see website:
Teaching is mainly through discussions, practitioner-led sessions, student-led seminars, presentations and individual tutorials. There are also some lectures.
Self-directed study forms an important part of the course, and you will be directed in study skills and guided in the areas for study.
A variety of assessment procedures are used such as written assignments, oral presentations, reflective diaries, poster presentations, small projects, reporting writing, image evaluation and clinical competency. This enables you to demonstrate your ability at analysing and evaluating a situation but also to use a variety of ways to present your ideas and abilities. The research project is a culmination of the development of all these skills.
Students completing the radiographic reporting modules or the clinical mammography modules must be working in or have access to a Diagnostic Radiology Department. Those completing reporting modules must have the support of a radiological mentor. The radiological mentor is not organised by Cardiff University.
