Why study with us?
Friendly and student focussed
We take a personal interest in each individual, providing a range of academic and personal support to help everyone achieve their potential.
Cutting edge learning environment
Benefit from dedicated facilities with the latest equipment (digital X-ray suite, VERT - the Virtual Environment for Radiotherapy Training, treatment planning software), learning resources, skills laboratory and access to an extensive network of libraries and databases.
Our undergraduate courses in both therapeutic and diagnostic radiography have achieved high ratings in independent quality assurance assessments.
We use a variety of teaching approaches to help you learn in a way that suits you best, including case based learning, peer assisted learning, seminars and small group tutorials.
Learning from the experts
Our lecturers are qualified and experienced radiographers with higher degrees and teaching qualifications.
50% of our undergraduate radiography courses are clinical, which means that you'll work with patients under the guidance of radiographers. This is your key to becoming competent and your chance to benefit from the close working relationships we have with a wide range of NHS Trusts and specialist clinical radiographers.
Some modules are shared with students from other health and social care courses. This gives you an opportunity to share knowledge and insights by studying and socialising together.
The School of Radiography has well established links with local health service providers and is able to provide focused and rewarding clinical education placements.
More to choose from
Outside the classroom, students also have a wide choice of social facilities with our two parent universities (St George's and Kingston), which are especially strong in sport, theatre and music.
