The University of Suffolk was originally established as University Campus Suffolk (UCS) in 2007, with courses leading to joint awards by the University of East Anglia and the University of Essex. Following the award of Taught Degree Awarding Powers (November 2015) and University Title (May 2016), an independent University of Suffolk was officially launched on August 1, 2016. The main university campus is based on the Ipswich waterfront.
The radiography provision sits within the School of Health and Sports Sciences and has run a well established degree course across East Anglia since 1991. Postgraduate lead for radiography Dr Jane Harvey-Lloyd said: “We have recently developed a portfolio of postgraduate certificates to meet the needs of the profession and underpin the development of advanced clinical practice. The courses are designed to scaffold the learning and development of radiographers in specialist areas, allowing for career progression, encouraging the growth of talent within the workforce and meeting the needs of the service.
“At the University of Suffolk, we are passionate about the development of diagnostic radiographers and the profession of radiography. Our recently developed and approved postgraduate courses are aimed at scaffolding the journey for advanced clinical practice in the areas of radiographic reporting of the chest and abdomen, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and paediatric imaging. On successful completion of these courses, you will be awarded 60 credits at Master’s level study.
“The courses have all been approved by the College of Radiographers and can lead you on to undertake a full MSc Professional Practice: Advancing Radiography Practice at the university which is due to start in September 2022 (subject to approval).
“If you are a radiographer interested in developing your clinical expertise and increasing your knowledge and understanding in any of these specialist areas, please feel free to contact me for any further information or alternatively each of the course leaders below:
