Course summary

Overview

Join our MSc Radiography programme that is accredited by the Society and College of Radiographers and designed to help you expand your knowledge and enhance your clinical skills in this fast-developing sector. The skills you can obtain are transferable to all healthcare organisations and are recognised overseas. Our programme is aimed at those with a current qualification as a diagnostic radiographer, therapeutic radiographer, or other health care professionals. This full-time course aims to develop your skills in areas such as image appreciation, radiographic reporting and mammography and many other core practices associated with radiography. Due to our optional approach to learning you will get to choose modules that best suit your needs so that your learning is relevant for you. In order to take your understanding of radiography further, you have a choice of dissertations, systematic review, empirical research or work-based project, which will increase your ability to influence change in the field of radiography and take the next step in your career. You will also have the opportunity to work in our dedicated general X-Ray room with PACS system for both image viewing experience and for experimental purposes. As well as a dedicated X-ray space we also have dosimetry equipment, a radiography training room using 3D interactive simulation to include Shaderware Computers and dedicated ultrasound equipment available for research opportunities and to enhance your learning. Your learning will be supported and delivered by experienced researchers and academics alongside clinical experts. Radiologists and clinical radiographers support each of the clinical modules ensuring a high degree of current and relevant clinical knowledge is applied alongside the requirement for questioning practice. You will also be assigned a designated personal tutor who will support you throughout your studies. You will also be part of a group of students who come from a variety of clinical backgrounds which also enhances your learning experience and you will be encouraged to share ideas and experiences. Undertaking our programme will support your personal and professional development as well as influencing and informing healthcare across Wales and beyond.
