Course content

The Clinical Radiographic Reporting pathway is designed for students who want to develop competency in the extended role of clinical radiographic reporting and helps you specialise in this specific area of practice. Clinical modules are offered in musculoskeletal reporting and chest, however please note that chest will not be offered in the academic year 2020/21. Other specialist reporting areas can be taken via the independent study modules. The programme is designed to enhance your current knowledge and understanding and give you opportunities to challenge and critically evaluate your professional practice.

The MSc Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences – Clinical Radiographic Reporting programme is endorsed by the College of Radiographers.

Fees and funding

  • The masters course is modular and the fees are payable per module. Some modules are subject to non-standard fees (e.g. ultrasound clinical modules).
  • You retain the fee package which you commenced on when you joined the part-time master’s course (as long as you do not have a break in study). If you first studied a module as an“independent” student (see section on application) this may mean your fees will increase from your first module.

For NHS employees, the University works with NHS trusts, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and Community Education Provider Networks (CEPNs) across the East of England under the recently configured Sustainability and Transformation Plans and their Local Workforce Advisory Boards’ transformational frameworks. It is therefore worth checking with the CPD lead for your Trust as part or all of your fees may be covered.
