Why study with us?

At the University of Cumbria you can study Diagnostic Radiography at either Carlisle or Lancaster. You will be on a three-year, full-time course of study utilising state-of-the-art imaging equipment and a contemporary curriculum which, in combination, are the envy of many other Radiography centres in the UK.

We have created clinical skills labs which replicate a hospital X-ray department (one of our labs is actually situated in a hospital close to the University giving access for students to a patient centred environment early in their course) and this set-up is focussed towards giving you the edge over other job applicants when you enter the clinical workplace.

You will study in a friendly, informal, yet professional environment and as approximately 50% of the course is undertaken in a partner clinical centre, your professionalism and interpersonal approach will need to excel. We also offer many postgraduate options for further study in the medical imaging field and have a reputation for high-level engagement in a specialist international research environment.

What can this course lead to?

On completion of the course you are eligible to apply for registration as a fully qualified radiographer with the Health and Care Professions Council and the Society and College of Radiographers. Our graduates have a reputation for clinical excellence, and many find jobs in this region. After a period of post-qualifying experience, some students choose to work abroad, in Australia and New Zealand, for example.
