MSc - Master of Science
Medical imaging is key to fast and accurate diagnosis in modern healthcare. As a radiographer you meet a variety of people and help provide them with a diagnosis to inform their treatment.
From September 2020 all new and continuing students on this course will receive a £5,000 maintenance grant each year if they’re eligible. They will not need to pay it back. Full details here Radiographers work with the latest technology and often in fast paced environments where a clear head and an organised approach is key to safe practice. You build on your prior learning of anatomy and physiology to develop a critical understanding of contemporary radiography practice. You gain the skills to be a safe, autonomous, caring, professional practitioner. Core skills underpinning radiography include dispensing ionising radiation, interpreting medical image appearances, care of the patient and use of technology. We take a problem-based approach to learning, which includes opportunities to share learning with students from other allied health professions to promote teamwork and engagement. Successful completion of the course provides eligibility to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council and membership of the Society and College of Radiographers.
The School is committed to the development of quality courses and to the enhancement of the student experience. To that end the Student Voice is central to the design and delivery of the learning experience. We invite you to provide feedback at key points in your student journey and ensure that we respond to your feedback through our 'you said, we did' approach.
The course is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and accredited by the College of Radiographers. Practice placements are at Middlesbrough, Stockton, Hartlepool, Darlington, Bishop Auckland, Sunderland, Durham, Gateshead, Newcastle and both North and South Tyneside.
How you are assessed
A range of assessment methods are used including written assignment, presentation and oral and written examinations. If you choose to complete the major project module of the MSc you are required to write a journal article.
Graduates in diagnostic radiography are a vital part of modern health care and employment opportunities are available in the UK and abroad.
