About Your Diploma

Radiography is a crucial part of healthcare practices as it is a technique that is used across the board. This form of imaging is used to detect abnormalities or issues relating to the human body, from bones to organs.

To take and diagnose these images, you need to be a trained professional, and if this is something that interests you, then you can begin your career path by studying for an Access to Higher Education Diploma (Radiography).

You will study core scientific and medical principles essential to working with radiation and hazardous materials safely, as well as how to provide support for the patients in your care.

As part of your studies, you will also explore radiography as a process and the roles and responsibilities of various healthcare professionals.

The course, and the degree you’ll be eligible to study after, will provide you with a diverse range of knowledge and skills that will be invaluable wherever your career takes you.

An Access to Higher Education Diploma is the equivalent to 3 A Levels and it is widely accepted as the alternative to A Levels during university applications. Please note, though, that you should check with your chosen university before applying.

The purpose of this course is to not only provide you with foundational knowledge about radiography, but also enhance your study skills to help you navigate through your degree.
