    Hi, I am about to start a medical imaging degree in September 2016, is there anything that anyone can recommend as prior reading? I'm a mature student and as it's been a while since I've done science based learning I would like to get a bit of a heads up. Alternatively if there are any good websites I can familiarise myself with or how people went back to studying after a bit of a break! Any recommendations/advice/tips would be very helpful! Thank you in advance!

    Hello Obriena34 and Primm,

    My sister in law is a Radiographer and has lent me a book called Basic Anatomy and Physiology for Radiographers by M Dean / T West. The book is helpful and easy to read (so far). Another book I keep hearing about and seriously considering buying is one called Bones and Joints: A guide for Students by Chris Gunn (Amazon £31).

    I have also joined Coursera (https://www.coursera.org/). It's free and has a wide range of modules to choose from: https://www.coursera.org/learn/anatomy and https://www.coursera.org/learn/physiology. You don't get an official certificate or anything but it might help ease you into studying again.

    Primm, being a mature student you may be asked how you would feel being instructed/supervised by a younger person and such like. They'll likely be a group task and perhaps a written statement but certainly an individual interview. It depends on the university. We were told to bring a passport sized photo (they attach it to your application).

    I'm both excited and terrified to begin Radiography in September.

    Good luck to you both!
