Radiography (Radiotherapy and Oncology) BSc (Hons)

Therapeutic radiographers are specialists in hospital healthcare teams who use advanced technology and machines to plan and deliver radiation treatment for cancer patients with pinpoint accuracy. Excellent interpersonal skills are needed to explain the treatment plans and to support patients and their families.

The radiography department at City, University of London was founded following the merger of five of London's top radiography schools. It has one of the best equipped radiography clinical skills suites in the UK, including a life-size virtual radiotherapy environment. This offers a unique environment which will mirror many of the facilities you will encounter whilst undertaking your practice placements in the clinical environment.

You will be taught by academics who are experts within the field and many of whom are active researchers. Our curriculum concentrates on evidence based teaching and is directly influenced by the research happening within the department which is informing radiography policy and practice. We have long standing and close links with radiotherapy departments in hospitals, the radiography profession, and industry. All of this offers a challenging yet supportive environment in which to study.

The BSc (Hons) Radiography (Radiotherapy and Oncology) degree is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council and the College of Radiographers.
