The MSc Diagnostic Imaging course has been approved by the College of Radiographers for a period of five years, from June 2016 to June 2021 inclusive. The course is also accredited by the Consortium for the Accreditation of Sonographic Education (CASE).

Learning and teaching

Teaching is through lectures, practical sessions, tutorial and seminars. You’ll learn through group work and discussion, individual exercises and practice.

You’ll be able to use University facilities for independent study, such as computing facilities and the Health Sciences library, with its extensive collection of online journals.


Modules are assessed by a variety of methods including essays, case reports, technical reports and unseen examinations.

The assessment of your competence to practice takes place via an observed clinical session or by portfolio, depending on the module. Formative assessment will provide support and feedback on your progress and confirm readiness for summative assessment.

Your results for every module contribute to your final degree classification.
