Course Summary

This course, which is accredited by the Society and College of Radiographers, is aimed at those with a current qualification and registration as a diagnostic radiographer, therapeutic radiographer, or other health care professionals, with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registration or equivalent. This radiography course has been designed to help you realise your full potential and succeed in becoming a truly expert practitioner. You will develop the skills needed to meet the ever-changing needs of this fast-developing sector, whilst ensuring that the patient remains core to everything you do.

You will become a ‘champion’ in your area and be seen as a role model of advanced practice and professional development within your field of practice and study, inspiring other colleagues who wish to advance their knowledge and skills. You will also gain a conceptual understanding of advances within radiography and radiotherapy and in doing so meet the needs of modern, effective and patient-centred clinical care, consistent with the highest public and peer expectations of advanced practice.

Health Care Professionals have never been better placed to extend their scope of practice. Imaging modalities such as MRI and CT are becoming more of a first line investigation in the treatment and management of patient conditions and thus they require Radiographers who are able to lead to service. The decrease in the number of radiologists coupled with the increase in demand for imaging services means there has never been a better time for radiographers to extend in to advanced practice with a qualification that is recognised internationally. Your experience at BCU will ensure that you can compete in the international radiographic arena as a creative problem solver and an enterprising advanced practitioner. The present workforce is more mobile and global than it has ever been; there are opportunities for diagnostic radiographers and therapeutic radiographers who have qualified in the United Kingdom to work in other countries and thus have a global outlook on clinical diagnosis and treatment.

Opportunity: Student Jobs on Campus ensures that our students are given a first opportunity to fill many part-time temporary positions within the University. This allows you to work while you study with us, fitting the job around your course commitments. By taking part in the scheme, you will gain valuable experiences and employability skills, enhancing your prospects in the job market. It will also allow you to become more involved in University life by delivering, leading and supporting many aspects of the learning experience, from administration to research and mentoring roles. Students can progress into the MSc after successful completion of the PgCert and PgDip.
