Course summary

Course overview

If you are a diagnostic radiographer wanting to enhance your professional career, then our course - accredited by the College of Radiographers - will enable you to enhance your interest and career in MRI.

Our PgD will build on your experience in magnetic resonance imaging. It will teach you the academic knowledge and safe clinical practice to enhance your abilities to work as a reflective practitioner and advance your career.

And, it has a longstanding high reputation in the MRI community – it has been running since 1996 in Lancaster. Many MRI radiographers in senior positions in departments have either been students themselves or a mentor for students on the course. This shows the long standing relationship we have had with many departments and their staff: you would be entering a course that is very well regarded in the MRI community.

Your learning will be enhanced with plenty of discussion with expert practitioners in MRI physics and clinical MRI.

Course summary

You'll learn to demonstrate the judgement and problem solving skills necessary to produce the highest quality diagnostic medical images using a variety of magnetic resonance technology systems.

Graduate destinations

This qualification can lead to employment as a diagnostic radiographer. A Masters level degree is becoming a requirement in many departments, so you will have a head start in finding work with the NHS or in the private sector.
