Courses and study
We offer two radiography undergraduate degree courses, BSc (Hons) Radiography (Diagnostic Imaging) and BSc (Hons) Radiography (Radiotherapy and Oncology).

The radiotherapy and oncology degree focuses on therapeutic radiography and gives students the skills and knowledge to work on the frontline of cancer treatment.
As a City student you will benefit from teaching from academics who are experts in their field; many are also actively involved in research to inform the future of radiography provision and practice. Our clinical skills facilities are some of the most well equipped in the UK, allowing students to practice their skills before attending placements at some of the capital and south east’s busiest and diverse hospitals.
