This programme is primarily aimed at Diagnostic Radiographers although the individual modules, if studied ‘stand-alone’, are applicable to a wide range of healthcare professionals.

You're able to combine modules from different clinical areas, such as: image interpretation, reporting, or breast imaging, to build a postgraduate portfolio culminating in a research dissertation to complete the Masters.

This post-registration programme in Diagnostic Imaging is intentionally flexible; modules may be studied in any order and at your pace (provided all modules for an award are completed within a six year timeframe).

You can also choose between modes, studying everything through distance learning, on-site, or a flexible combination that best meets your needs. You'll meet with your personal tutor/course director each semester to discuss module choice and review your progress.
