Radiotherapy and oncology

We have many years of experience in offering radiotherapy courses, training and development for health professionals. This is supported by high quality teaching staff, research and facilities, as well as strong links with health professionals and organisations throughout the North, Yorkshire and East Midland regions.

Radiotherapy is the use of ionising radiations to treat patients with cancer, although occasionally non-malignant conditions are treated. Therapeutic radiographers plan and deliver radiation therapy to cancer patients using technologically complex equipment.

We offer courses at all levels. We can give you the skills and experience to become a qualified therapeutic radiographer or provide continuing professional development for experienced therapeutic radiographers.
