    Hello Sophie,

    I am a Pg Radiotherapy student. The universities generally are concerned about whether you know what radiotherapy is (do not confuse it with diagnostic radiography), team work, work experience in a care setting, at least 1 day observing in a radiotherapy department as a prospective student, demonstration of being a compassionate person, an interest in oncology, an explanation of why radiotherapy is an attractive occupation for you, a scientific background, examples of effective organisational skills, and examples of communication skills with a variety of people.

    I hope this helps.

    S.
