    This is for those interested in studying Diagnostic Radiography (Undergraduate level) starting in 2017.
    How is your personal statement going? What Unis are you looking at? How did interviews go (when they happen)? (that sort of thing)

    Hopefully any questions you have can be answered by people on this thread. (I am applying for this course for 2017)

    Would also be good if people already studying radiography or qualified could help answer our questions and give some advice.

    Subscribing. I qualified 4.5 years ago so can answer questions about the 'real world' of work rather than the application or interview process (now over 8 years ago...). I work in CT and MRI as well as plain film so if you have any questions about those areas specifically then fire away.

    Where did you study? Did you do additional training for CT/MRI??

    Hey! I'm on an access course now, hoping to study Diagnostic Radiography next year. I was starting my personal statement this morning. We're going over them in class actually so that'll be really helpful.

    What uni was you thinking of going?

    I went to CCCU. I did in-house training in CT after six months of working in general, and then MRI 18 months after that.

    My tutors have told me to put what I have done not what I'm going to do as you can't really talk about it if that makes sense
    Which uni you hoping for?
