Radiography students at QMU have access to facilities within the clinical departments of Lothian and surrounding health trusts, thus reinforcing the collaborative ventures between Queen Margaret University and Health Care Providers.
At undergraduate level, we offer a four-year Master of Radiography: Therapeutic (MTRad)/BSc (Hons) Radiography: Therapeutic and Master of Radiography: Diagnostic (MDRad)/ BSc (Hons) Radiography: Diagnostic.
We also offer a HECert Mammography - a course is for individuals who are currently working in a clinical environment within mammography services and who want to develop clinical skills, critical skills, and reflective thinking in practice.
If you already hold an undergraduate degree and wish to retrain as a radiographer, our two-year postgraduate courses in MSc Diagnostic Radiography (Pre-Registration) and MSc Therapeutic Radiography (Pre-Registration) may be of interest.
For those already working in radiography who would like to develop their skills and knowledge, we offer:
