Subject

Diagnostic imaging

Our BSc (Hons) in Medical Imaging (Diagnostic Radiography) aims to ensure that, on graduation, you have the skills required to successfully embark on a career as a Diagnostic Radiographer and to be eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

This full-time three-year programme includes clinical placements which stretch into the summer vacation and as such this programme is longer than those in other subjects. This enables us to provide both the academic and practical content in sufficient detail to ensure that at the end of three years you are competent to start work as a Diagnostic Radiographer.

We aim to educate radiographers to be caring professionals, able to empathise with patients and offer high levels of patient care, while being confident in their technical ability through a strong academic foundation and able to work effectively in a multi-professional environment.

Interprofessional learning is delivered as part of the core syllabus and in practice, where our students are encouraged to develop the insight and skills needed to work effectively in the multidisciplinary hospital setting upon graduation.

The Radiography degree is based in South Cloisters at our St Luke's Campus, where we have excellent facilities including a diagnostic x-ray room with digital imaging facilities and laboratories for computing and practical work.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

The stats here mainly cover radiography graduates (diagnostic radiography more than therapeutic). With a lot of modern medicine (and dentistry) using high-tech equipment, there are big opportunities for medical technology grads, although most early careers are spent operating these complex instruments, rather than designing or developing them. We are short of graduates in these roles, with radiography a particular area of concern and becoming one of the most in-demand specialities in the health industry and whilst this cannot guarantee you a job, outcomes are very good for graduates and this looks likely to continue.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
