The MSc Medical Imaging assessments allows students flexibility to direct assessments to their area of developing practice and have been praised by external examiners for their relevance to current clinical practices. Assessments range from: portfolios demonstrating advanced practice skills; case studies; presentations; critical evaluations of imaging practices; examinations in image appearances and imaging technology; and a final research project.
Students need to achieve a mark of 40% for each assessment for each module.
