Introduction

Designed to train a new generation of leaders in the field, our MSc Diagnostic Imaging programme will give you new insight into current and best practice – and train you to create real and meaningful change. You’ll develop advanced critical thinking skills, synthesise evidence from a range of research and other sources and build on industry knowledge and clinical experience to inform professional discussion and debate.

As a part of GCU’s thriving and diverse academic community, you’ll not only prepare for a successful career but use what you learn to advance the field and contribute to the common good.

You can choose between studying the broad-based MSc Diagnostic Imaging programme or an optional pathway specific to your area of practice.

Optional pathways

Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Increase your understanding of MRI theory and practice with this professional development opportunity, which includes supervised placements.

Medical Ultrasound: Use state-of-the-art simulation facilities and sonographic equipment to gain new insight into the clinical applications of medical ultrasound. You’ll rehearse practical scanning skills and get valuable feedback from experts in the field.

Graduate prospects

Your MSc Diagnostic Imaging helps you improve your skills and push boundaries – setting you up for success whether you pursue a career in industry or academia. Our graduates make a positive impact through service redesign and radiographer-led service provision – as well as published research, conference presentations and doctoral study.

International student start dates

For new international students, orientation events start on 14 September 2018. This extra time is specifically designed to assist new international students in settling into the UK and GCU prior to the start of general student induction and teaching.

There will be a whole host of fun and informative activities taking place during this period, including campus and city tours, as well as welcome events where you can meet other international students.

Assessment methods

We use a wide range of learning and teaching methods to ensure that you have both the necessary knowledge and understanding of business and management and a portfolio of intellectual and personal skills.

Each module on the programme uses its own learning, teaching and assessment strategy to achieve learning objectives. Assessment methods vary between modules and may include unseen examinations, class tests, essays, management reports, case studies, presentations, and group work.

Teaching methods

The learning and teaching methods we use to ensure that our programme is both vocationally relevant and academically challenging. Our approach is student-centred, practical, participative and relevant to the needs of employers.

We've moved away from the traditional teacher-centric learning to a more independent learning approach, where you are encouraged to develop critical thinking skills.
