Radiography (Radiotherapy and Oncology) - City, University of London

The BSc (Hons) Radiography (Radiotherapy and Oncology) at City provides a route into a rewarding lifelong carer as a Therapeutic Radiographer. The course equips students with the physical, technological, biological and social knowledge required to work within a healthcare team and gain the professional skills and accreditation to practice as a radiographer at the frontline of cancer care. On graduation, students are professionally recognised by the College of Radiographers and are eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) to practise in the UK. City is ranked 1st in London for Medical Technology, including Radiography (Complete University Guide 2020). The radiography department at City has one of the best equipped radiography clinical skills suites in the UK, offering radiotherapy planning and a virtual environment radiotherapy training (VERT) treatment room, which creates a fully immersive, life-sized 3D simulation of a radiotherapy treatment room. This provides a unique environment which will mirror many of the facilities encountered whilst undertaking practice placements in the clinical environment. The course is taught by academics who are experts within the field and many of whom are active researchers. Our curriculum concentrates on evidence based teaching and is directly influenced by the research happening within the department which is informing radiography policy and practice. City works in partnership with a range of hospital trusts and students complete clinical placements in leading hospitals across London and Essex including The Royal Free Hospital, University College London Hospital, The London Clinic and St Bartholomew's Hospital in London and in Essex, Queen's Hospital Romford and Southend University Hospital. This course has excellent employability rates; most graduates find employment in the NHS or private hospitals, and graduates may also be able to practise internationally.
