Course overview

Enhance your advanced clinical and practical skills in ultrasound

Are you ready for a new and exciting career path? Perhaps you want to work in a different area of the medical profession? Well, have you considered the rewarding and challenging field of Medical Ultrasound? Its rapidly become an essential part of investigative healthcare and is used to support a variety of medical professionals including radiographers, physiotherapists, chiropractors, podiatrists, nurses, midwives, and doctors.

The MSc Medical Ultrasound course supports your professional development. Accredited by CASE for six years from February 2018, the course will give you the specialist knowledge, plus all the advanced clinical and practical skills needed for ultrasound practice. In your first and second years of the postgraduate degree, youll get the chance to select the units that are right for you, choosing between a series of clinical application and non-skills based units to build up your range of abilities.

Whats more, as we know not everyone is available to study on a full-time basis, weve made the course part-time so you gain your qualification while you work. The degree is made up of three progressive levels - the Postgraduate Certificate, the Postgraduate Diploma and the Masters - meaning that if you want to finish early you can get an exit qualification at the end of each stage, allowing you to tailor a learning experience thats right for you.

With our expertise you will develop an understanding of the science and instrumentation of ultrasound in order to produce optimum images, with safety and quality assurance to make sure you lead with best practice.泭

Youll be taught by actively practising practitioners and highly-qualified academic staff, who will guide you on your educational journey through professional development, experiential learning and reflective practice, tutorials, workshops, practical clinical skills classes, seminars, small group work, and lectures. Private study will form a significant part of your learning; reading and researching and preparing presentations and assignments, spending roughly an average of 8 hours per week study time.

You will have access to our web-based resources, including electronic databases and gateways, and online journals and a discussion forum for you to network with others on your course.

Course details

To earn your degree in MSc Medical Ultrasound, youll need a total of 180 Masters level credits. Usually, youll aim to gain 60 credits a year - at the end of stage one, youll qualify for a PgCert (60 L7 credits), at stage two youll qualify for a PgDip (120 L7 credits), and finally an MSc at the end of stage three (180 L7 credits). Dont be put off if you think this is too much or too little, as youre encouraged to go at your own pace so you can do more or less than this in one year, depending on what suits you.

Even if your circumstances change and you cannot commit to the full 3 years of study, you will get the chance to earn a qualification at multiple exit routes. If you successfully complete stage one, you'll qualify for a PgCert (60 Level 7 credits), at stage two you will qualify for a PgDip (120 Level 7 credits), and finally an MSc at the end of stage three (180 Level 7 credits).泭

We recommend that you dont take on more than 40 credits a year in one of our clinical application units due to the practical-skills workload involved. We want to make sure that you are comfortable and able to complete the workload that you take on at a reasonable pace.
