Non-academic entry criteria

Personal statement

In addition to meeting the academic criteria, you should be able to demonstrate a broad awareness of the scope of radiography and show a keen interest in a career in this area, this should be evident from your personal statement.

Work experience

We understand the challenges for our prospective applicants for medicine and allied health courses trying to gain work experience at this time, particularly in clinical settings.    

In response to the government’s social distancing guidelines, which have a significant impact on all areas of life, we have chosen to relax our work experience requirements for prospective applicants for our courses which would normally require these.    

Despite the relaxed requirements, we still require our applicants to have an understanding of the realities of working as a healthcare professional and to show they have the necessary skills and attributes for their chosen career. Online resources can give you valuable insight into working in the healthcare sector and outline the wide range of careers and courses available. You can find a number of suggested resources for each of our courses here. 

Dress code

Whilst on a placement during the course, students will need to comply with the uniform policy. Please download a copy for reference: uniform policy (PDF)

Health and police screening

Candidates accepted onto healthcare courses are required to pass an occupational health screening. When admitting candidates to study and practice as a health practitioner, we have an obligation to both patients and to the individual student. If you are concerned about a health issue we strongly advise you to contact us prior to applying. All offers of places are made subject to satisfactory health clearance and an agreement to undergo appropriate blood tests and immunisations.

You will be asked to be immunised against Hepatitis B for personal safety, so please contact your general practitioner (GP) to arrange a screening. You should begin a course of Hepatitis B immunisation as soon as you submit your UCAS application, as it consists of three injections over a six-month period. If you firmly accept an offer you will be sent a confidential health questionnaire and further information about the process of screening for Hepatitis B.

This course will include work with children and vulnerable adults so all applicants will be required to have an enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check. More information about this is sent to applicants as part of the admissions process.

Read more about DBS checks.

Professional registration

If you are a current healthcare professional or a member of a registered professional body, you must provide details of your registration. If your professional registration has been suspended or revoked or undergone a disciplinary/fitness to practice investigation, you will be required to provide further information if selected for interview. This will be reviewed by the admissions tutor and you may be required to provide full copies of related documentation. Any information you disclose will only be used for the purpose of considering your application to the applied course.

In year 1 you will participate in Essentials for Allied Health Professionals learning at St George’s. This will introduce you to the basic knowledge that underpins health science and inter professional working. In addition you will participate in diagnostic radiography education which will provide the Radiography specific knowledge and skills to enable you to hone your clinical skills within a Radiography department.

In year 2, you will build upon your knowledge and skills from year 1 and your clinical placement. You will learn about the specialist imaging modalities and the more complex anatomical regions and techniques.

In the final year, the focus is on integrating your knowledge and practice skills as well as expand your interprofessional learning opportunities. You will develop your ability to critically evaluate your radiographic practice for your future career. You will also undertake and publish research on a radiography related topic of your own choice. You will be ready to graduate with the full attributes, skills and knowledge required of a Diagnostic Radiographer in the changing healthcare environment.

We have been working hard to find ways to teach your courses without disruption, while keeping our staff and students safe and making sure we follow government guidance on Covid-19. We won’t be making any significant changes to the content of our programmes, but there will be some changes to the way they are delivered. Please see below for further details of how this may affect this course.

If government advice changes, we may need to update our plans. If we do so, we will update this information, and will keep current students and offer holders informed by email.

We will also continue to update our frequently asked questions page for applicants and offer holders as more information becomes available.

Course content

From September to December 2020 all teaching will be delivered online, except for skills based teaching, which will be conducted on campus with appropriate distancing and personal protective equipment (PPE), and with controls on the number of people in each location. This will apply for students in all years during term-time.

Teaching will be delivered via both ‘synchronous’ sessions (involving real-time interaction with lecturers) and ‘asynchronous’ sessions (recorded materials). For full details, see our Framework for Online Education. Real time interaction with students remains essential to foster and maintain a sense of belonging and to check learning and progress.

Personal tutor support and all other student support will also be remote for this period. This has worked well since March 2020, when we moved to remote learning and teaching. Various methods have been used: telephone, online (using web conferencing systems like BigBlueButton and Microsoft Teams), emails and videos. All of the learning outcomes in our modules and courses will still be delivered.

Placements will resume from September 2020, pending Health Education England (HEE) provide approval. Therefore, we currently have no plans to change the delivery, style or timings to clinical placements. Students on placement will be expected to adopt local Trust working patterns and guidance, and areas. Students who identify themselves as vulnerable or share a home with a vulnerable person will have a risk assessment. The team will liaise with each student on an individual basis.

Simulation facilities will be used to supplement clinical education when appropriate. However, we anticipate all clinical modules will continue as planned.

Supporting vulnerable students

Students considered to be most at risk from Covid-19 should work at home wherever possible in line with government advice. Students who are going on placement will be required to complete an individual risk assessment and others may choose to do so. In addition, students from vulnerable groups, including care leavers, students estranged from their families and students with disabilities, are prioritised for help from the University’s Hardship Funds and for accommodation in Horton Halls. Priority for loans of laptops from the University will be given to those eligible to receive a hardship grant; those registered as disabled, care leavers or with caring responsibilities; and international students who may have difficulty sourcing an appropriate device on arrival in the UK.

We recognise the impact that the current circumstances may have on mental health and have expanded our counselling provision, offering remote appointments to any student. In addition, every student will be allocated a personal tutor to offer individual pastoral and academic support from the start of their studies. (Further information about health and wellbeing advice during Covid-19 is available here.)

Priority consideration has been given to support for students with disabilities when accessing teaching and learning online, through the provision of automatic live captioning and British Sign Language within our primary technologies of Panopto, MS Teams and Big Blue Button. These can benefit a range of students, especially those who are deaf or hard of hearing, as well as students with an Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC), memory processing issues, and for whom English is an additional language.

Human-level captioning is also available where a need has been established through the Disability Advisory team. Human-level captioning requests are processed by the Learning Technology Services (LTS) section and can be requested by email to lts@sgul.ac.uk.  

How the course will be delivered

View all Close all

Incoming students (starting September 2020)

The existing learning outcomes for our modules and courses will remain in place. From September to December 2020 all students will primarily access their learning, including learning materials, via the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), Canvas. Hands-on practical teaching and learning activities will be delivered on campus with appropriate social distancing and personal protective equipment (PPE) measures put in place, and with controls on the number of people in each location. 

The online components of the course will be designed to balance interactive real-time sessions with lecturers and other students, with self-paced independent study. Students will have clear learning pathways through the activities they are expected to engage with, and there will be opportunities to check learning and progress.  

Simulation facilities will be used to supplement clinical education when appropriate. However, we anticipate all clinical modules will continue as planned.  

We intend to run our usual simulation sessions in the Radiography Simulation Suite to help prepare you for your placement. These will be in smaller groups due to social distancing restrictions, and PPE will be provided for students and facilitators. Using PPE will help to prepare you for the ‘new normal’ of the clinical environment. The sessions will be condensed into one day. Being part of a smaller student group will enable you to gain greater interactive experience.

Personal tutor support and all other student support, such as the Academic Success Centre, will also be online for this period, using a range of methods for staying in touch, such as telephone, email and the University’s web conferencing systems BigBlueButton and MSTeams. Real time interaction with students remains essential to foster and maintain a sense of belonging and to check learning and progress.

Pending Health Education England (HEE) approval, placements are currently expected to resume from September 2020 with minimum changes to planned delivery or timings. All students on placement will be expected to undertake a risk assessment and adhere to local Trust working patterns and guidance. Students will not normally be placed in ‘Covid-hot’ areas, and those who identify themselves as vulnerable or share a home with a vulnerable person will have a risk assessment. The team will liaise with each student on an individual basis.

To get the most from online study, hardware requirements have been established and communicated to all existing students and offer holders. Students will need their own personal computer or laptop and an internet connection in their place of accommodation. This needs to be in place at the start of the course. Once enrolled, students will have the ability to use Office 365 as part of our institutional licence, and access software required for their modules/courses via AppsAnywhere. In addition, we offer Office for Mac via Ofice365, but only the following applications are available for Mac: Teams, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook, OneNote. Web-based Office applications are available on Mac. Full details are available here. There is a provision for students who may struggle to meet the hardware requirements to contact our IT Hardship team.

Course length

View all Close all

Incoming students (starting September 2020)

We are planning to deliver the course within the planned timescales, and for successful students graduate at the expected time.

Although some assessments are designed to be taken on-site, we have developed an alternative strategy allowing assessments to be completed remotely without coming on to campus. It is anticipated that this will only impact one of the year 1 assessments, planned for early December. From January 2021, if government advice permits, we intend to run all planned assessments in their original format. Some of these will still be online assessments, as the Programme Specification explains.

Current students

We are planning to deliver the course within the planned timescales, and for students to progress and graduate without delay. Although some assessments are designed to be taken on-site, we have developed an alternative strategy allowing assessments to be completed remotely without coming on to campus.

Clinical modules will be facilitated by placement partners from September 2020, if Health Education England and government guidance permits. The revised year plan will enable year 2 and year 3 students to complete all required modules.

If there is a further outbreak of Covid-19, delivering care to affected patients will be the overriding priority for our placement partners. If that happens, we will make changes to limit the impact on our students: we will rotate students through sites that are continuing to accept students and, where possible, we will use our simulation facilities to offer a comparable clinical experience.

For continuing students, it may be to delay placements to the next year of the course.

Additional costs

View all Close all

Incoming students (starting September 2020)

We do not expect students to incur any extra costs over and above those that we have advertised to students on the course page.

These can be used for online learning. However, it would be helpful for you to have a PC or laptop as you progress into year 2 and 3. If you need to, you can access the fund for support (email IThardship@sgul.ac.uk ). Students starting in September 2020 can also apply for the new NHSBSA Learning Fund bursary (£5000 plus extra funding for certain categories of student).
Our placement partners (Trusts) will provide PPE on-site.

Assessment methods

View all Close all

Incoming students (starting September 2020)

You will have online meetings with staff to keep you fully informed. Your Level 4 examinations will be in an online format in December. Your learning will be supported with online formative quizzes, mock tests and exams.

The methods and delivery of your assessment will be revisited as and when there are changes in national and institutional guidance. The delivery platform may change, but the established learning outcomes for the modules and the programme will be assessed.

Current students

Dates of assessments have been amended to facilitate the change in delivery. You will continue to have online meetings with staff to keep you fully informed – this has worked well since lockdown. Your learning will be supported with online formative quizzes and mock exams. The methods and delivery of your assessment will be revisited as and when there are changes in national and institutional guidance. The delivery platform may change, but all learning outcomes for the modules and the programme will be assessed.

If restrictions impact on placements again, the team will (if restrictions allow) take a pragmatic approach and, where possible, assess you in alternative formats. However, it is possible that graduation may be delayed for some final year students until they are able to complete all assessments and attendance requirements of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) – we have an obligation to our regulators to confirm that you have met the clinical and practical outcomes for the programme before you graduate.

Award

The Diagnostic Radiography BSc programme is accredited by the HCPC and regulated by the Society and College of Radiographers, our professional body. We have discussed the changes we are making with our regulators, who have confirmed that the programme continues to meet their standards.  You will therefore be eligible to apply for registration when you graduate from the programme.

Location of study

All face-to-face teaching will take place at St George’s, University of London, on the campus that we share with St George’s Hospital in Tooting, with appropriate social distancing measures in place. We have not explored alternative locations for teaching and have no immediate plans to do so. If government advice on social distancing changes, we will consider ways in which we can deliver teaching on site in a manner that is safe for students and staff.

Our placement providers will continue to offer placements as they have in the previous years and we will use our existing procedures for allocating students to placements.
