Course overview

It is recognised that learning can take place in a variety of settings. Work based learning is encouraged as part of government policy in making learning more relevant to the work place and to the work that people carry out within that environment.

Healthcare professionals carry out a range of work related tasks which could be used as the basis for further learning whilst at the same time gaining academic credit.

The flexibility of this work based learning approach will enable you to undertake study that will lead to a recognised credit bearing award but without the need to attend formal lectures within the university.

The work that you undertake as part of this module will be embedded within your clinical practice. Examples of such work include the development of treatment/imaging techniques, new policy procedure development. You will be allocated an academic supervisor from within the Division of Applied Biology, Diagnostic and Therapeutic Sciences (Radiography) in order to provide you with support and guidance throughout the duration of the module.

The module is designed to enable you to undertake scholarly activity within a specified work related area. Your learning will focus on the enhancement of practice relevant to your role.

Prerequisite knowledge

Non EEA students can only apply as part of a programme, not as a stand-alone module.

  • Honours degree in radiography (typically minimum 2:2) from a UK university
  • appropriate professional qualifications e.g. Diploma of College of Radiographers.
  • International qualifications in Radiography may be acceptable if the holder is able to gain registration with the Health and Care Professions Council.

Any applicant with non-standard qualifications may apply subject to confirmation that their qualifications are acceptable and equivalent to an Honours degree in radiography from a UK university.

Normally applicants should have a minimum of two years clinical experience in their clinical specialty (e.g. radiotherapy/diagnostic imaging) before starting the module and should continue in clinical practice whilst undertaking the module.

English requirements

For those students whose first language is not English one of the following qualifications is also required:

  • IELTS: 7.0

Please note that due to changes in the UKVI's list of SELTs we are no longer able to accept TOEFL as evidence of English language for students who require a CAS as of April 2014.
