You will learn about the role of the radiographer and elements of image appreciation, image reporting, teamwork and management. Much of the course is spent on clinical placements throughout Wales, applying skills alongside practising professionals. Our balanced combination of theory and practice aims to develop you into competent researchers, giving you a diverse skill set which is highly attractive to potential employers. Graduates will be eligible to apply for registration as a diagnostic radiographer with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), and for membership of the Society and College of Radiographers (SCoR).
