The programme aims to increase practical and theoretical knowledge of radiography so that you can apply these skills in the further advancement of your profession. In addition, our three mammography modules (HCT053, HCT119 and HCT254) can be studied on a stand-alone basis to provide practicing radiographers with the expertise necessary to become effective, competent, independent mammography practitioners.
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 full-time 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 the opportunity to work in our imaging suite with a computed radiography system and PACS for both film viewing experience and for experimental purposes.
The course comprises a mix of profession specific modules and generic modules, and full-time students take four taught modules in one academic year, with a further six months to complete the dissertation.
How will I be taught?
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.
How will I be supported?
All students are allocated a named personal tutor, following registration onto the course. They will be able to support you in developing your personal learning needs and offer academic support throughout the course.
You will also be allocated a research supervisor for the dissertation element of the course.
he increase in demand for imaging services means there has never been a better time for radiographers to explore opportunities to extend in to advanced practice with an internationally recognised qualification.Imaging services are increasingly a first line investigation in the treatment and management of patient conditions. This requires radiographers who are able to lead service, and the MSc Radiography is designed to further enhance the clinical skills and theoretical knowledge of qualified diagnostic/therapeutic radiographers to the benefit of patients and wider inter-professional teams.
