Why Teesside?

I decided to study for further qualifications to improve my skills and ultimately become a radiographer. I wanted to work in the NHS in a role that was both patient-facing and scientific and felt that radiography was the perfect fit for me.

Having lived locally I’ve always been aware of the University and my mum studied here too. Teesside has a fantastic reputation for looking after its students and I wanted to go somewhere where I knew I would be well supported.

What do you enjoy about your course?

The support both online and face-to-face at the University is excellent and I really enjoy being out on placement, as I can put the theory work into practice.

What do you think of the campus and services offered?

I like the campus and services – it’s nice to have everything you need on one site. The support and help I’ve had from Student and Library Services has been brilliant. There is also a good range of shops and restaurants in the local area.

Would you recommend Teesside and your course to others?

I would recommend Teesside because I believe that both the quality of teaching and the pastoral support is excellent. This course will definitely help me achieve my ambitions – it’s a vocational course and provides the route to professional registration as a radiographer.
