The Diagnostic Radiography degree aims to equip students with the knowledge, skills and attributes required in a qualified diagnostic radiographer. Students will learn how to use a wide range of imaging techniques and technology to produce high quality diagnostic images to aid the diagnosis and treatment of injury and disease. This programme is not currently available to international students. The time on the programme is split into approximately 60% university based and 40% spent on clinical placements, in NHS hospitals and independent sectors. Students will spend on average about 20 contact hours of teaching per university week. The timetable for the taught year will be between 9am and 6pm Monday to Friday. Part of the practice placement rota requires students to attend some placement during the evening, overnight and weekends. In order to incorporate sufficient practice placement weeks that allow students to consolidate theoretical learning into practical skills, the Diagnostic Radiography programme runs over a full calendar year and contains 3 semesters in years 1 and 2. This totals an average of 45 weeks per year for years 1 and 2 (Year 3 will run September to June only). Students will be required to examine service users of all gender identities and from all religious and ethnic backgrounds.
