For current international students

Radiography Programme

As a radiography student you will learn to see what no one else can. And you will become part of a rapidly developing profession.

It only takes 3½ years to complete the radiography programme and secure your future as a professional in a high demand. While the programme is currently taught only in Danish, we do welcome exchange students for clinical placements and are able to include exchange students in some of the more hands on classes.

You will gain entry to a world that is unknown to most, and discover that diagnostic imaging covers far more then x-rays. Radiographers are closely involved in diagnosis and treatment of many health conditions every day, and you can make a difference in the lives of people.

Three new areas of specialisation

In 2008 we changed the structure of the programme so that you design your own programme from a variety of modules. You will specialise in one of these three areas:

  • Diagnostic imaging
  • Therapy
  • Nuclear

Many modules are common for all students so that you will be able to decide on your area of specialisation relatively late in your studies and all course subjects are based in diagnostic imaging. Examples of theoretical modules are

  • Anatomy and physiology
  • Anatomy for diagnostic imaging
  • Radiographic imaging with an emphasis on a technical understanding of x-ray, magnet (MR), ultrasound and CT scan equipment.
  • Radiation hygiene
  • Pathology
  • Radiology
  • Patient care
  • Psychology
  • Scientific theory and methods
  • Statistics
  • Radiation therapy
  • Nuclear medicine (PET etc.)
