A renowned degree course
This is a 3-year, full-time undergraduate programme that runs for an extended 45-week year and blends teaching with carefully coordinated placements.
The modules studied are taught by a team of radiotherapists and medical physicists. Modules cover subjects such as cancer management and care; the technical and scientific aspects of radiotherapy using real radiotherapy medical equipment; clinical and patient skills, human behaviours and ethical issues surrounding cancer treatments.
Placements take place in the North West's three major cancer centres and their satellites. There you can experience the wide range of conditions, equipment, treatment techniques and health settings you'll encounter in your career.
Taught by experienced academics and clinicians where you will be introduced to the complex world of cancer care. By the end of the programme you will have become a highly employable practitioner able to start your career in Radiotherapy in the UK or overseas.

BSc (Hons) Diagnostic Radiography
This 3-year full-time degree course will train you to work as a professional radiographer who can use up-to-date technology to assess patients.
Taught by experienced practitioners, you'll cover patient anatomy, physiology, disease and the behavioural sciences, as well as the science and technology behind imaging equipment and its use.
Carefully structured placements will give you comprehensive practical training and experience in patient care and diagnostic imaging, across a range of NHS and private healthcare settings.
We focus most of the training on general radiography using Computed/Digital Radiography, and the PACS system, although you'll gain a grounding in other modalities and techniques such as CT, MRI, NM, US and IR.
By the time you qualify you'll be a confident, highly employable practitioner with excellent patient care skills, a knowledge of health and disease, and a thorough grasp of the relevant technologies.
