This is Radiography

diagnose injury and disease, support patients

Radiographers diagnose injury and disease, and work with other healthcare professionals to treat and care for patients.

Our Diagnostic Radiography programme is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the College of Radiographers. It will equip you with the skills needed to progress into a specialist career area in a range of healthcare settings, and make a positive impact on patient's lives.

As well as developing expert X-ray skills, you will also learn modern radiography techniques such as CT scanning, MRI and nuclear medicine. You may then decide to specialise in a certain technique after graduating. 

Our Clinical Technology programme gives you a mix of technical and clinical abilities. It enables you to explore careers in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of patients and also the development and manufacture of medical equipment, artificial organs and tissue. It is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).
