About Diagnostic Radiography (pre-registration) at University of Derby

  • This is one of a very small number of MSc Pre-Registration courses in Diagnostic Radiography in the UK, and currently the only one in the region
  • Study a course approved by the Health and Care Professions Council, meaning you'll be eligible to apply for registration as a Diagnostic Radiographer as soon as you graduate, as long as you meet the HCPC's requirements.
  • Develop as a competent, reflective practitioner who is capable of working both independently and as part of a multidisciplinary team
  • Enhance your critical thinking, enquiry and research skills using state-of-the-art facilities, including our Clinical Skills Suite which contains a purpose-built Diagnostic imaging suite to match the equipment you'll use in your career
  • Engage with an enthusiastic, experienced teaching team who use a variety of learning approaches to help you develop your professional and academic skills
  • Explore your passion in a variety of work placement opportunities including large teaching hospitals which offer a wide range of imaging modalities, to smaller community hospitals offering more locally based care
  • Enhance your employability and career prospects, building on the skill and knowledge of your undergraduate degree
  • Join the programme with a science or health care related degree at 2:1 or above (other entry requirements apply)

This course provides you with all the knowledge and practical experience you'll need to become a qualified Diagnostic Radiographer. In addition to developing the necessary technical and professional skills required for safe and effective clinical practice, you will develop a deep and critical understanding of the profession, vital for shaping the future of radiography.

This course is an accelerated programme of study, delivered over two full calendar years (September - September). Due to the accelerated nature of the course, you will only have three weeks annual leave over the summer period (two weeks in June and one week at the end of the August); this means that you will spend the majority of the summer period in clinical placement, developing the required practical skills.
