Subject

Therapeutic imaging

With an integrated approach enabling you to relate your academic work closely to your clinical experience, this programme aims to produce competent, caring therapeutic radiographers, who are able to work at the interface between the latest in medical technology and the cancer patient. The programme will provide the skills and knowledge to enable you to become a professional capable of delivering first class cancer care. You will learn about the nature and development of cancer, the role radiation plays in its management and gain the clinical skills necessary to care for your patients on a daily basis.

You will study a range of modules both inter professional for example communication skills, and profession-specific, such as radiation science and technology and oncology modules.

Clinical practice is integrated with the academic programme. The clinical placements increase in length from Year One through to Year Three, resulting in a programme attendance of up to 45 weeks per year with some extension into vacation time. All placements are arranged in North West of England Cancer Centres and there is an opportunity to spend an elective period in a Radiotherapy department of your choice.

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?
