You learn through
project and research work
Applied learning Work placements
This is a post–registration course, supporting practitioners already working in this field. As such, much of the learning and assessment you undertake will be related to, and based on, the work you are undertaking in your local practice.
In the final masters stage you research a specific area of interest relevant to your professional role and priorities in radiotherapy planning practice. This enables you to specialise in your chosen topic, develop expertise and hopefully influence practice or policy.
You will have regular opportunities to engage in online discussions with your peers during your study on the range of modules available to you. These tutor–directed activities enable you to share your ideas and experiences from your local practice and make connections with other individuals who have common goals and may face similar challenges. On some modules, you may also have the opportunity to communicate with experts in the field of Radiotherapy Planning or other related topics, for example, during the delivery of a live webinar.
