About

The Diagnostic Radiography (pre-registration) Msc is offered by Teesside University.

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. Through this course 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.

Students studying this programme who obtain an NHS bursary can't also apply for a postgraduate loan from the Student Loan Company. From September 2017 funding for this programme will change. The website will be updated when details are confirmed.radiographer.
