Can I do radiography?

I do Eng Lit, Psychology and Biology. I know a lot of university’s want two sciences excluding psychology, so is there anyway for me to do radiography without doing taking another science a level and preferably in a London uni?
Thanks either way!!

Sadly as a regular UCAS application you can't. But you can definitely e-mail the admission officer of a University your interested in and ask if they'll be able to accept you. Hopefully all goes well :smile:
You need to look at the entry requirements on each Uni course page - the required or preferred A levels subjects will be clearly stated, along with any essential GCSEs.

Examples -
BSc (Hons) Diagnostic Radiography degree City, University of London - BBB including one of Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics or Physics
Diagnostic Radiography | London South Bank University (lsbu.ac.uk) - BBB including a Science

Just be aware that you will also need relevant 'caring' experience, and a realistic idea of what the job involves -

You have been misinformed - the three unis in London (City, LSBU and St George's) only require one science for diagnostic radiography (in fact, the majority of unis only ask for one science). Use the NHS course finder to search for accredited courses and then check the entry requirements on the course page:
