You'll need a degree or postgraduate qualification approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
Before you apply for a degree, you'll need to decide whether you want to work in diagnostic radiography or therapeutic radiography. Visiting a local radiography department at a hospital may help you decide. Find your local hospital using NHS Choices.
If you're a health professional or a graduate with a relevant first degree, you may be able to take a fast track, pre-registration postgraduate diploma or masters' qualification over 2 years.
You'll usually need:
- 5 GCSEs at grades 9 to 4 (A* to C), including English, maths and a science
- 3 A levels, including at least one science subject
- a degree in any subject for a postgraduate course
