Radiography: Medical Imaging (Mammography) PgCert/PgDip/MSc: After you graduate

What our graduates say

Check out what our graduates have gone on to do and how studying at Kingston helped them achieve their goals.

Sue Garnett

Name: Sue Garnett
Course: Medical Imaging (Mammography) PgCert/PgDip/MSc  

"I have enjoyed my five years with Kingston University as a part-time postgraduate student. Even though it has been hard work and demanding on top of a full-time job, it has been worth all the effort.

"As a radiographer in Coventry Breast Screening Unit, I had initially achieved a mammography film-reading postgraduate certificate at Salford University and then transferred to Kingston to do the research methods and digital imaging modules. After this I studied clinical-based modules, which were pertinent to my job of assessing and diagnosing breast conditions, before attempting the daunting task of my dissertation, with help and encouragement from my supervisors each step of the way.

"With support from the staff at the Faculty, my workplace and my family, I gave my all to achieve my MSc, and also won a prize. However, all was not finished. With the breast screening programme extending its age range and more women passing through our department, there was a desperate need for a consultant radiographer. As I lacked a breast ultrasound qualification, I returned to Kingston to take this.

"All is behind me now and the consultancy post is achievable – the Kingston programme has been enormously beneficial to my career. I have also been invited to be a guest lecturer, and my dissertation has been published in a medical journal. Overall, the MSc programme offers more than a qualification. The rewards have been so worthwhile."
