hi, my names michael and im starting my AS-levels at the moment...i was just wondering what a-level subjects would universities most prefer for the Radiography course. I chose Computing, Psychology, Biology and Chemistry. Are those suitable AS-level subjects for this type of course? I'm planing to drop chemistry at the end of the year, as i hear it's pretty hard but im not too sure yet. By the way, the only reason i'm going for this course is because my dad recommended it, saying after i have a degree in radiography, i can then specialise. Because when i saw the salary for a normal radiographer i was shocked...£19k - £24k yearly. So i was wondering if there are other things i could specialise in, which provides a higher salary, and wondered if this would take long to get a degree in.

thanks in advance.
The range of starting salaries for newly qualified radiographers starts at band 5 on the National Health Service (NHS) Agenda for Change pay scale: £21,176 - £27,534.
Range of senior radiographer salaries, band 6: £25,472 - £34,189.
Range of lead or superintendent grade salaries, band 7: £30,460 - £40,157.
Managers or consultant radiographers can earn up to £67,134, Band 8c.
Working hours are 37.5 hours a week but increasingly departments are staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Shifts, weekends, bank holidays, nights and on-call working are required. Enhanced pay is sometimes offered for on-call work.
About 90% of radiographers are employed by the NHS (see NHS Careers ).
Part-time work and job share opportunities are available.
Career breaks are possible. Refresher and return to practice courses are available.

These are examples of roles and the AfC bands at which they may be paid:

radiographer diagnostic and therapeutic (Band 5);
radiographer specialist (Band 6);
radiographer advanced (Band 7)

First off you stupid little girl are you a member of the College of Radiographers?? i guess not by your post. You obviously dont have an outlook on who the best people are talk to with regards to people from overseas wanting to come work here!

I suggest you go get back in your box with your little mate and read some more books, as after all as you say Radiotherapy is very hard and your on the hardest course in the UK for it!
And clearly from your above post you are not on the HPC register. And i need to point out another thing in your foolish rant, its the college of radiologists...not radiographers. Radiographers are governed by the society of radiographers.

Poor Michael...he started off this conversation asking for information. Zippyrn and KenHall06 you should be ashamed of yourselves by hijacking this thread for your own personal squabble. Call yourselves professionals...I wouldn't be surprised if the poor lad has changed his mind and run for the hills...

Hi, As i have recently moved to England and before that i did BS hons in politics and international relations from Pakistan and did my collage from their in which my main subjects were maths, physics and chemistry. I was working there too but as I have moved here and I have a baby and family to look after. I want to start study after which at least I can work after in that specific field. So my question is can you tell me how difficult this course is and how much time it needs? What to expect in those three years? I don’t want to choose something after which I might regret and won’t be able to give my time to.

Hi I am doing access course to health care. I want to come in the field of nhs. I am confuse between Adult nursing or diagnostic radiographer. I prefer to do Diagnostic radiographer in my uni. I am quite confuse about the job prospects. How easy or hard compare to adult nursing is to get job as a radiographer plus course wise Is it quite similar in university or more harder than Adult nursing

hey i'm a final year student diagnostic radiographer!! i think lot depends on which departments you were taken to as some departments will be very thin on the ground with male staff to to the nature of their departments e.g breast imaging.

Departments like A & E, Fluro, CT, MRI and the general depts should all have more strongly staffed male staff around, we are out here but there aint many of us!! its still a very strongly female dominated area. this said no one really pays much attention to this as you just get on with your job and work as a team.

If you are considering a career in radiography make sure you do your research as the course is very stressful and its alot harder than alot of other health courses E.g you level of anatomy knowledge will be comparable to that of a doctor! .it needs to be a job you can see yourself doing for 30 yrs + unless you choose to go into some other medical area. This said now there is lots room to move departments and specialise in areas such as Fluro, MRi, CT, A &E, Ultrasound.

It is all worthwhile tho in the end, just a pain in the arse whilst your at university but this doesnt las long then your thrown out into the clinical areas to practice your radiography.

On a final note i think you should know its a practical job even tho you do a 3 yrs degree course.

Nedd anymore help just ask! good luck for the future tho!

Hi. I'm going to be applying to study Radiography in 2018 also. Currently studying an Access Course which I'm hoping to complete by November. Depending on what grades I get will determine which Universities I apply to, but I'm not too worried were I go.

Hi I wanted to know how hard is radiography as I am interested in applying for it what does it involve as I have studied health and social care level 3 extended diploma ?
