Course summary

Overview

As a practising therapeutic radiographer, this unique programme allows you to quickly and easily obtain a full masters qualification.

Having an MSc Radiotherapy will enable you to meet the standards expected by the profession and greatly enhance your career prospects.

To apply you must already have the Postgraduate Diploma in Radiotherapy from the University of Liverpool, or a pre-registration Postgraduate Diploma from a different UK university that confers eligibility to apply for registration as a therapeutic radiographer with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). You should also have 12 to 18 months clinical work experience.

The MSc consists of one 60 credit dissertation. Your learning starts with a four day block workshop, which runs in September and January each year. You then complete your independent research project under the guidance of an appropriate supervisor. You can liaise with your research supervisor to develop a study plan that works for you both e.g. face to face meetings, online meetings or a combination.

The Directorate staff have a very wide range of expertise including medical physics in radiotherapy, computer treatment planning, imaging in radiotherapy, general cancer care and strategic planning of cancer services locally and nationally. The Directorate also has its own CTSim, treatment planning system, a patient management information system and a virtual environment in radiotherapy (VERT) system. These facilities will allow supervisors to support students on the MSc in Radiotherapy in a diverse range of dissertations.

Completion of the MSc must be achievable within 6 years of the start of your pre-registration Postgraduate Diploma programme.

Career prospects

Applicants will normally be practising therapeutic radiographers in Band 5/6 positions. Obtaining the MSc Radiotherapy will greatly enhance career prospects in specialist therapeutic radiographer posts eg tumour specific roles, leadership roles, areas of specific expertise such as imaging and/or treatment planning, research roles and in educating the future workforce.
