So I've just graduated with a 2:1 in BA (Hons) Health and Social Care. I'm finding it difficult to find jobs specifically in my field and that are at a graduate level. So I was considering taking a gap year and then pursuing a masters in medical ultrasound As I have recently found that I'm interested in this field. However, I'm not sure. This is mainly because I fear that I may not be able to find jobs even after a masters.

Also on the course it states;
"However, applicants from a non-health care background should note that, at present, employment in some NHS Trusts would not be possible due to the requirement for professional registration." Does that apply to me? Or does health and social care degree fit into a health care background?

I am also confused by this statement: "On successful completion of the full MSc in Medical Ultrasound, graduate entrants (who do not hold an existing registerable qualification) will not be eligible for HCPC registration."

I know I'm probably over thinking and stressing over nothing but I'm just so confused as to whether this course is right for me.

You'll only be able to register with the HCPC through this course if you already hold registration with them (ie: if you're already registered as a radiographer). Most NHS trusts will want you to be registered to employ you in a role after this course.

as moonkatt says if you aren't all ready a Health professional , the course is fundamentally useless as you would not be able to work as a Sonogrpaher, the sonographers i have met are either diagnostic Radiographers or Midwives ...
