M.Sc. Radiography

Cardiff University | Cardiff, United Kingdom
The programme aims to increase students evaluative, critical thinking and problem-solving skills and to increase their practical and theoretical knowledge of radiography so that they can apply these skills in the further advancement of their profession.

Description of Radiography


The course is structured in a modular format. Students complete modules totalling 120 M-level credits to be eligible for an exit award of a Postgraduate Diploma. All students complete a compulsory generic module in Research Methods in Health and Social Care (30 credits). The modules are those considered to be of relevance to the practising radiographer and other allied health professionals engaged with imaging. Theoretical and clinical practice elements combine in order to optimise service delivery, enhance clinical skills and improve the overall management of the patient. Those undertaking the MSc are required to complete the research methods module.

Full-time students undertake all taught modules during one academic year, while part-time students undertake taught modules over two years. Assessment methods used vary according to the modules but include coursework, practicals and presentations with image reporting and mammography modules having clinically based assessments.

Students successfully completing sufficient modules are able to proceed to the dissertation stage and if successful will be eligible for the award of a Master of Science degree.

English Language Requirements


IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
