Clinical Visit

Part of the Diagnostic Radiography course conditions are that, prior to acceptance, you must have attended an X Ray department in a hospital of your choice for the equivalent of 2 full days and had a satisfactorily completed clinical visit form (which can be downloaded here) signed by a supervising radiographer. Please note that we do not accept visit forms that have been supplied by other universities.

The visit form should be submitted by March 15th.  If this is completed prior to interview, please bring the form with you; alternatively you can post it to School of Healthcare Sciences Bangor University, Radiography, Archimedes Centre, Wrexham Technology Park, Wrexham LL13 7YP.

Interview format for Diagnostic Radiography

  • At the start of your interview session we give a presentation to all interviewees that explains how our course is run; interviews and site visits take place after this presentation.
  • During site visits you will have the opportunity to meet students and staff from the course.
  • We use a group interviewing system and you will be asked to complete a written answer to a question that will be provided at the start of the session; this will take ten minutes.
  • You will then be given an individual question (different from the other candidates) and your response will be given to the whole group. There are usually 6-7 candidates in one group.
  • Your interviewer may also ask you questions based on information provided on your application form and you will also have the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the half hour interview.
  • We find that this method of interviewing gives everyone a chance to speak, which is often not the case in some types of group interview.
  • No sensitive information will be discussed by your interviewer.

What happens following interview?

You will be informed of the outcome of your interview via UCAS so it is important that you check your account regularly.
