Applicants should hold a minimum of a second class honours degree, or the equivalent from an international institution, in radiography, nursing, midwifery, or another relevant subject. An appropriate professional qualification, such as a Diploma from the College of Radiographers, a Diploma in Nursing, or a Diploma in Midwifery may be accepted, subject to successfully demonstrating the required academic level by completing a pre-course assignment (early application is recommended). Applicants should also have a clinical placement in a recognised ultrasound department for an average of three days per week. This placement must be arranged prior to applying for the course, as the University is unable to assist with arranging placements. Closing date for the programme is mid-July although earlier closing dates may apply if all places have been filled before this date. Early applications are encouraged.
Months of entry
This course offers flexible study options for healthcare professionals undertaking obstetrics, gynaecology and / or abdominal ultrasound training and for those wishing to develop their skills further using work based learning options.
Our expert staff provide a supportive environment to encourage students to develop their academic abilities and clinical skills to prepare them for working at an advanced practice level in the future.
A clinical placement is required in a recognised ultrasound department, to provide a wide range of clinical experience and supervision during the programme. The clinical skills suite at City University London is equipped with a real-time ultrasound machine and a simulator, which are used for demonstrations, teaching and monitoring clinical progress.
A range of innovative teaching, learning and assessment methods are used to provide a varied learning environment and help students to develop skills and link theory to practice. The experienced academic staff are supported by expert guest speakers to provide current, relevant course material.
The course is accredited by CASE (Consortium for the Accreditation of Sonographic Education), allowing you to practice ultrasound in the UK and some overseas countries, on successful completion of the programme.
