You could work in one of several sections within the hospital medical-imaging department and carry out a variety of imaging investigations, including projection radiography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. You produce images to obtain or confirm a diagnosis, or you may be involved in therapeutic procedures like angioplasty. This course combines academic study with practice placements in imaging departments. You develop the knowledge, skills and experience for a rewarding career in diagnostic radiography. This course is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).Throughout the course, as part of the placement experience, you will be required to participate in a shift pattern rota or work weekends. Prospective applicants are advised to research the profession of diagnostic radiography prior to writing their personal statements and attendance at the selection event. The very best way to gain an impression of the role is to spend time in the clinical department. While recognising that this is difficult to arrange, we do provide a form to capture such experiences and this can be brought to selection events or posted to us prior to the (end of the UCAS cycle/May).
