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. Our facilities include a state-ofthe-art digital imaging suite, which supports learning and development of radiography practice skills.

Case based learning

Our teaching draws on the wealth of experience of our placement collaborators and alumni who present masterclasses and workshops that enrich your learning. They also inform the curriculum to maintain its currency.

Clinical 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.

  • 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

Assessment methods

A combination of academic coursework (including essays, reports and presentations), written and practical examinations, practice placement assessments and a research dissertation 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.
