Fantastic facilities

Gabby was working as a Radiology Department Assistant at her local hospital before she decided to study the BSc (Hons) Diagnostic Radiography and Imaging course at Herts. She loved her job but when she watched radiographers at work, she knew that is what she wanted to be.

Gabby chose Herts after attending an open day with her family. She says, ‘The equipment they have there, such as CT scanners and X-ray rooms, blew us away. The lecturers I met were all kind, supportive and enthusiastic too.

‘Herts is also close to my home and everyone I had spoken to who studied there loved it. They couldn’t recommend the course enough!’

Achieving her ambitions

Gabby fulfilled her ambitions and is now a Senior Radiographer in the cardiac catheterisation laboratory at the Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Gabby says, ‘Herts prepared me well for this role. Staff were supportive during the entire course, and they gave me more confidence and helped guide me in what I wanted to do. Everyone at Herts, from the lecturers to the people on my course, were lovely.’

Gabby’s advice

Gabby’s advice to current and future Herts students is to, ‘Enjoy every moment. Take every opportunity and accept all the support offered to you. Every lecturer wants you to succeed and they will always help you get to where you want to be – never be afraid to ask for help!’
