The majority of the academic element of this course is delivered at Kingston University, and covers basic biological, physical, sociological and psychological sciences and radiographic practice.

Diagnostic radiography

Teaching and learning methods

Teaching methods include lectures, seminars, peer-assisted learning, case-based learning, simulated practical experience and work experience in a practice placement setting. Facilities include a state-of-the-art digital imaging suite which supports learning and enhances practical skills.

Case based learning

Each week begins and ends with a tutorial based on a clinical scenario. By applying the taught theory to a clinical context, both your critical skills and learning techniques develop.

We also draw on the wealth of experience represented by our professional contacts and alumni, who influence the design of our courses and deliver master classes and workshops that enrich your learning.

Practice placements provide an opportunity to put theory into practice and consolidate learning experiences. Diagnostic radiographers work predominantly in hospital diagnostic imaging departments, but also in operating theatres, accident and emergency departments, and resuscitation rooms.

Practice placements may take you anywhere in Greater London, including:

  • Ashford and St Peter’s NHS Trust, Chertsey, Surrey
  • Chelsea and Westminster NHS Trust, London
  • Epsom and St Helier NHS Trust, Carshalton, Surrey
  • Frimley Park NHS Trust, Camberley, Surrey
  • Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children, London
  • Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Trust, London
  • Kingston Hospital NHS Trust, Kingston, Surrey
  • National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, London
  • Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Guildford, Surrey
  • St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, London
  • The Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust, London
  • Croydon University Hopsital, Croydon Health Services NHS Trust, Surrey

Assessment methods

A combination of academic coursework (including essays, reports and presentations), written and practical examinations, practice placement assessments and research reports are used to assess your progress.

Because we want you to reach your full potential, we build in opportunities for formative assessments and provide feedback on assessment tasks so you know what you need to do to optimise your performance.
