Staff expertise

Our staff include qualified therapeutic radiographers and other health professionals who are experts in their fields and come with a lot of experience.

We pride ourselves on the levels of academic, clinical and pastoral support our students can expect, including year and personal tutors, disability support and clinical tutor support, with a lecturing team who are accessible and welcoming.

Facilities

Radiotherapy2The students on our radiography courses use the following facilities to support their clinical practice skills development:

  • laboratory-based equipment such as 'VERT' (a radiotherapy treatment simulation system)
  • radiotherapy planning computers
  • a computer imaging suite

Clinical placements

In addition to the use of our facilities, we help our students find clinical placements in radiotherapy departments, as we believe that the best way to gain radiotherapy clinical skills and knowledge is by hands-on experience that can be gained by working in our partner clinical placement hospitals.

We have a dedicated team that manages and supports clinical placements. The team involves our University lecturers, practice educators and clinical co-ordinators who work together to ensure that your clinical practice experience is of the highest quality.
