Bangor University’s Wrexham Campus
Studying at our Wrexham Campus is like being part of a family. It is dedicated to Health Science subjects and we run our BSc Radiography course here.
Our Wrexham Health Science campus has a dedicated library with helpful subject specific staff on site. Our students get the opportunity to connect with all of the academic staff at this smaller campus that has an excellent student to staff ratio.
Radiography is one of the professions allied to medicine. Diagnostic radiography is an invaluable aid in the diagnosis of disease and a designated lab is also equipment to practice with the variety of imaging and reporting.
We also have a well-equipped skills lab and learning incorporates:
- Digital x-ray suite allows for a range of clinical skills to be taught to students in a simulated environment that helps to prepare you for clinical placements.
- Access to desktop simulation for projection radiography, CT, and radiographic physics which you’ll be able to access both on campus and via remote access to University computers.
- Immersive virtual reality equipment – Bangor is the 1st University in the country to have this software available to students which will enable you to safely examine virtual patients.
Placements for Radiography students take place in North Wales and in the surrounding NHS Trusts. These are critical aspects of the learning experience, building on theoretical knowledge and its application in real life settings. This experience equips students to enter the profession with appropriate Radiography skills, and ready to contribute their expertise in a variety of clinical settings.
