  • Course description
    Course overview

    This course is for radiographers working in medical magnetic resonance either on a full time or part time basis and who wish to extend their knowledge and research skills within medical magnetic resonance.

    Applications are invited from international applicants who are able to secure a clinical placement for the duration of the intended course of study. Radiographers may also study individual modules from the course for continued professional development activity.

    Over the coming year the mode of study for some modules will change. In the past, the entire course has been studied on a day release basis with students attending the University for 12 consecutive half days per module but in the future some modules will be offered over week blocks and/or through distance learning.

    The course includes a work based learning module which can be individually tailored to meet clinical practitioner and clinical department needs.  

    Course content

    Students must obtain 60 M Level Credits in order to receive the award of Postgraduate Certificate, 120 M Level Credits in order to receive the award of Postgraduate Diploma and 180 M Level Credits in order to receive the award of MSc.

    There are compulsory modules for this course:

    i. Physics and Instrumentation of Medical Magnetic Resonance
    ii. Clinical Applications of Medical Magnetic Resonance

    These modules have been designed to incorporate the scientific and clinical aspects of Medical Magnetic Resonance which will enable practising radiographers and other health care professionals to extend their knowledge and develop their research skills in this speciality. Students can then select additional modules to design their own individual course of study that will complement their clinical needs.

    Teaching and assessment

    The course involves a variety of learning and teaching methods. These include some formal lectures as well as class based workshops, student discussions, presentations and self directed learning tasks.

    September 2007 will see WebCT introduced into some modules. This will enable students to complete some aspects of individual modules online.

    Self-study is also a vital area of study at this level. Students must be aware that many hours of their own time are needed to complete the course and the week to week background tasks that support their studies. For a 15 M Level credit module some 120 hours of self study will be required in addition to the time dedicated to attend lectures.

    Once enrolled, students have five years in which to complete the entire course. Some students decide to only study one module per term, spreading the course out and allowing time for other commitments. If department funding is an issue, students may enrol initially in the Certificate course and then carry on to the Diploma or MSc if and when funding permits.

    Assessments cover a range of types depending on the module studied, many of which have a clinical element to them. They are designed to promote skills that will be useful in clinical practice and necessary for the practitioner of the future.

    Examples are:

        * clinical case studies
        * an oral presentation of a piece of work, either a case study or poster
        * completing a reflective learning portfolio
        * unseen examinations
        * formulating a business plan or research proposal
        * situational analysis
