- Shannon Wong, Radiography Degree Graduate

I enjoyed learning more about anatomy and physiology – I found the medical conditions, diseases and uncommon pathology that we covered in our classes fascinating. And I like how the course wasn’t just theoretical – we had regular hands-on practice sessions to learn how to position patients during procedures.

- Fong Xiwen, Radiography Degree Graduate

Through clinical placements offered during this course, I was able to get out of my comfort zone and interact with patients and staff to further improve my interpersonal skills. Apart from that, clinical placements also provided me with essential hands-on practice to help me better understand concepts taught in school.

- Jasena D/O Ramdas, Radiography Degree Graduate

Radiography is great for those with a strong interest in biology and physics, and who love to work with sophisticated technology. We learn about human anatomy and have to understand how the machines work. Apart from being a clinical radiographer, I can go into teaching, management or research in the future.
