Course Description

The Therapeutic Radiography BSc equips you with the knowledge, technical expertise and care skills needed to plan and deliver radiotherapy treatment to patients with cancer. You will learn how to use advanced radiotherapy equipment and digital technology such as CT scanners in a safe and responsible manner to target the tumour with millimetre accuracy, delivering the maximum dose with minimum impact on healthy tissue.

The therapeutic radiographer works alongside clinical oncologists, physicists and other healthcare professionals in a multi-disciplinary oncology team to provide patient-centred care. You will care for patients of different ages, social classes and ethnic backgrounds. It is important that the therapeutic radiographer has both the appropriate caring personality and technical and analytical skills.

This programme is awarded by St George's, University of London and provided by the Department of Radiography in the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education.
