Why Therapeutic Radiography (Hons) at London South Bank University ?

  • Great work experience opportunities – with the chance to gain clinical experience in many of London's internationally renowned teaching hospitals.

Employability

With a degree in Therapeutic Radiography, you'll be eligible to register with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as a therapeutic radiographer. Therapeutic Radiographers work in a multidisciplinary team in Radiation Oncology – and they play a vital role in the management and treatment of patients with cancer and tumours. They are predominantly responsible for the accurate localisation, planning and delivery of ionising radiation.

You’d be involved in every stage of the treatment process: helping plan and administering treatment, explaining it to patients and assessing their responses. This is why therapeutic radiographers need excellent interpersonal skills and emotional resilience – they deal with patients and their families at very difficult and emotional times. Making patients feel comfortable and guiding them through the process can be as important as the technical skills required for this role.
