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.
