Whilst studying at QMU, Dearbhaile Hayes won a top radiography prize, the Fujifilm Medical Systems Award for Academic Excellence. The Award is presented to a final year student who has achieved the highest marks within the entire radiography division.

The Course

Training at QMU has offered me the opportunity to work in a wide variety of clinical placements sites, including an opportunity to undertake an elective placement overseas. Helpful and experienced lecturers who are passionate about the course, along with placements in numerous different departments have equipped me with the necessary skills to secure and begin my career as a Diagnostic Radiographer.

My advice for current and prospective students would be to make the most out of clinical placements, get involved and ask questions. For international students or those moving far from home who may be apprehensive about moving abroad for third level education my advice would be to bite the bullet and take the chance - it may be the best decision that you will ever make. Indeed, as a recent graduate I’m delighted that I made the decision to move abroad to QMU to pursue my dream career.”
