Ideal for healthcare professionals looking to up-skill.
Working with imaging physicists, biomedical NHS collaborators and using industry-standard equipment such as MRI scanners; you will learn how medical imaging techniques play a role in the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of disease.
Focusing on modern medical imaging research, you will gain specialist knowledge through taught modules before carrying out an extended research project of your choice. This Masters* is a great way to enhance your career.
You will develop the ability to plan and execute a research project, and effectively communicate your findings in an articulate and professional manner.
Work closely with a dedicated academic team who are all active researchers in their own right, and who regularly publish in top physics journals. Visit our academic team pages to find out more about the ways in which we support you and explore our research interests.
MRI technicians can advance into more specialised areas, medicine technologists or into supervisory or managerial roles
Postgraduate open events: We hold postgraduate open events throughout the year. Find out more and book a place.

What you'll study
In terms one to three you will study your taught modules, in term four you will conduct your Masters' level project. This gives you 15 weeks to concentrate full-time on a specialist area of interest and apply what you have learnt to a specific problem.
Medical Imaging (20 cp) - Topics include:
Research Methodology and Ethics (20 cp) - topics include:
Optional module (20 cp) - Select an additional 20 credit point Masters-level module from an appropriate area of the School, examples of potential modules include: Medical and Microbiology; Molecular Biology, and Microbial Diagnosis.
Research project (120 cp) - You will undertake an extended project (experimental or theoretical) on a full-time basis from February onwards in an area related to your chosen imaging specialism. The project will be chosen from those offered by research teams.
Learn a new language
Alongside your study you also have the opportunity to learn a new language. The University Language Programme (ULP) is available to all students and gives you the option of learning a totally new language or improving the skills you already have.

MSc Internet and Security - Nottingham Trent University
"I joined NTU for postgraduate studies directly after completing my undergraduate BSc degree overseas. My high academic achievements led to achieving the International Student Scholarship.
Multiple factors influenced my choice of postgraduate studies. The UK’s and NTU's reputation for exceptional education, along with my thirst to experience different cultures and systems were amongst the top reasons. Family influence played a role also as my father completed his postgraduate education in Nottingham.
Postgraduate studies are more self-driven and carry more responsibilities. The teacher is more of a friend who guides, and the responsibility to educate yourself and pursue extra areas of interest lie within your own hands. This by itself is a challenge and maintaining it requires a lot of work and effort.
The teaching and educational facilities available for students are above my expectations. Every resource is made readily available including libraries, online resources and well equipped group study rooms.
The course has enhanced my skills in multiple areas including academic knowledge, new programming languages and research and personal skills such as creativity and management. This is of paramount importance in building my future career.
I would highly recommend this course - the field of internet and security is becoming increasingly important. The opportunity for an industrial placement is a rare opportunity that this course helps facilitate."
MSc Biomedical Science Flexible Learning - Nottingham Trent University
"I had been working in an NHS Haematology/Transfusion laboratory for three years when I came across the flexible Biosciences course at NTU.
I first heard about this degree through the IBMS website. I was looking for an accredited long distance course and found this was my favourite because of the specialised syllabus and the ability to carry out the modules at my own pace whatever time of day.
I read about the bursary award for this course on the NTU website. The bursary application was really straightforward and easy to complete. I had to explain my reasons for applying and how I was suitable for the bursary.
Without financial assistance I believe that I would have found it very difficult to complete this course over the two years and would perhaps have had to prolong my study to be able to manage the payments. Being awarded the bursary was a huge privilege and it has allowed me to concentrate on the course content instead of worrying about finding the next payment, for which I am extremely grateful.
The course is highly specific to my line of work and attendance will benefit the department by producing a more knowledgeable and experienced member of staff. This will improve both the quality of service and patient experience as well as ensuring my continuous professional development within the NHS.
My undergraduate research project was concerned with stem cells and the amount of apoptosis that occurs with overnight storage at 4◦C. This has encouraged me to read around the subject of stem cells and I believe these amazing cells have yet to be fully understood. I hope that my postgraduate research project will also give me passion for another subject area.
Science is forever changing and the structure of scientists within the NHS is under development in accordance with modernising scientific careers. I hope to be involved with these changes and progress both academically and professionally, with hope of becoming a senior Biomedical Scientist in the near future."
MRes Sports and Exercise Science - Nottingham Trent University
"After looking around the university on an open day I was amazed by the quality of the equipment throughout the university on Clifton.
The BSc (Hons) Exercise, Nutrition and Health degree course allows students to understand up to date, relevant sports science data in a hands-on job related environment with the most up to date equipment. I liked the fact that each course module was different, keeping each subject interesting, but with elements that allowed learning to overlap.
After finishing my undergraduate course I started looking for Masters Courses. I could not find a university with the same facilities and equipment that would help me achieve in the areas of sports science. Through my academic career I have developed the ability to apply scientific principles in the design, data collection and write up of nutrition/ physiology research projects.
All of my lecturers over my four years at Nottingham Trent University helped me with my studies, from drop in sessions, labs and lectures. They also helped me to achieve one publication and funding from the European Hydration Institute to begin research on another.
Nottingham is a busy city, which is easy to get to and cheap when living as a student and after student life. I am now working for Nottingham Trent University as a Laboratory Technician in CELS.
During my social time I am also continuing to research within the areas of sports science and nutrition with the help from fellow lecturers to add more published research to my CV.
The more you put into your time at university, the more you will get out. University is a stepping stone to your future. So use it wisely."
