Therapeutic radiographers are highly skilled caring professionals who have an essential role in the treatment of patients with cancer.
GCU is the largest provider of therapeutic radiography education in Scotland. The teaching team work closely with practice colleagues in the NHS and with their professional body to ensure the programme is relevant and up-to-date.
Practice placements take place at the Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre in Glasgow, the largest cancer centre in Scotland and one of the larger centres in the UK, Ninewells Hospital in Dundee, Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and Raigmore Hospital in Inverness.
Completion of an honours degree in Radiotherapy and Oncology leads to eligibility to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council, and membership of the Society of Radiographers.
In our programme we use a wide range of both summative and formative assessment methods. This includes written and online exams, essays, case studies, critical review and presentations. We also use self and peer assessment in addition to tutor marked assessments.
In clinical practice, students have professional performance assessments and staged assessments in addition to reflective work and practice-based exams. Students self-assess formatively and are summatively assessed by practice educators

Glasgow was incredible, I was genuinely surprised when I arrived here. Don’t believe the hype, Glasgow is a bustling metropolis with loads of amazing bars, coffee shops and markets (The Barras is a godsend for decorating your flat) to whittle down your student loan. Caledonian is also a lovely university – I was seriously impressed by their support services, they were very accommodating and helped me out with bursaries and applying for various schemes. They were really dedicated to making sure I was able to achieve my degree with the minimum of financial and health stresses, and I’m very grateful!
