Course content

Radiography exists in a changing professional environment and requires practitioners to continually update and review clinical practice.

This course is designed for diagnostic radiographers and provides a flexible framework to prepare you for advanced practice by studying topics relevant to your needs and those of your clinical departments. You can choose to study for a PgCert, PgDip or MSc award.

You may be granted credits for your previous academic and professional qualification through Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) scheme. An independent work-based learning module enables you to study around your individual CPD and workplace needs.

This course is delivered in partnership between Kingston University and St George's, University of London which means you will benefit from the expertise and facilities of both institutions. Many of the modules are also taught in partnership with NHS Trusts.

You'll have access to state-of-the-art facilities which include VERT, a treatment planning suite and a diagnostic radiography simulation suite comprising two X-ray tubes, X-ray table, erect bucky, mobile machine, image intensifier and four ultrasound machines. Imaging facilities include computed radiography and digital radiography.

Several teaching staff are research active and expert practitioners, which keeps your learning cutting-edge and provides a uniquely dynamic environment.
