Simulation on the treatment planning system will develop your understanding of the complexity of radiotherapy treatments and provide the opportunity to develop skills of clinical reasoning.

In the final year, the focus is on the application of knowledge, technique and safe use of technology in the practice of therapeutic radiography. Additionally, skills development in clinical reasoning and evaluation of practice will prepare you for your professional practice. You will also complete a research project on a radiography related topic of your own choice.
