This programme allows qualified assistant practitioners working in the field of medical imaging to progress their existing qualification to a full BSc Honours Degree in Diagnostic Radiography. They will then be eligible to apply to the HCPC to enter their register as a Diagnostic Radiographer. It is intended for assistant practitioners who have already achieved a relevant foundation degree and have completed an AP radiographer bridging course.
The applicant must be working in a medical imaging department with the full support of their employer to undertake this course.
Graduates are eligible to apply to the HCPC to register as a Diagnostic Radiographer on successful completion of the programme. Other career avenues may include research, teaching, working with medical imaging equipment manufacturers or healthcare management.
