Funding update: Non-repayable grants of at least £5,000
The Government has announced that from September 2020 students studying undergraduate and postgraduate pre-registration nursing, midwifery and many allied health courses, including radiography and speech and language therapy, will receive a non-repayable and non-means tested (universal) grant of £5,000 a year. This is in addition to existing mainstream student support accessed through the Student Loans Company.
The Government has also announced additional support for childcare costs, and funding for specific courses identified as shortage specialisms, including BSc Radiography courses.
This means new students joining our BSc Radiography courses from 2020 will be eligible to receive at least £6,000.

We offer two radiography undergraduate degree courses, BSc (Hons) Radiography (Diagnostic Imaging) and BSc (Hons) Radiography (Radiotherapy and Oncology). As a diagnostic imaging student you will learn the skills and knowledge to help diagnose and treat illness by producing and interpreting medical images. 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. Our undergraduate courses have been ranked 1st in London for Medical Technology, including Radiography for three consecutive years (Complete University Guide 2020 and 2021) and have received an overall student satisfaction rate of 95% for Medical Technology, including Radiography by the most recent National Student Survey 2020.
Upon graduation students will be professionally recognised by the College of Radiographers and are able to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council to practise in the UK.
We offer three postgraduate radiography courses MSc Medical Ultrasound, MSc Radiography (Computed Tomography) and MSc Radiography (Medical Magnetic Resonance). The medical ultrasound degree is designed for professionals across the healthcare sector who wish to achieve the academic qualifications and skills to pursue a career in ultrasound. Both the computed tomography and medical magnetic resonance courses are for qualified radiographers who are looking to advance their career and are accredited by the College and Society of Radiographers.
As a postgraduate student at City you will be taught by a specialist programme team, many of whom are still practicing clinically and provide expertise across the sector. Teaching is flexible and offered on a part-time basis, allowing students to continue with their careers whilst they study.
