A School of Healthcare Studies lecturer and two of her students have been giving on-line careers advice via The Guardian website.

The newspaper set up on an on-line interview allowing people considering a career in radiography to question the experts.

Among the seven-member panel providing the answers were Keren Williamson (pictured), course leader, admissions tutor and lecturer in radiotherapy and oncology in the School of Healthcare Studies. Joining her were two final year students, Katie Leech studying the BSc in Diagnostic Radiography & Imaging and Maya Patel studying the BSc in Radiotherapy & Oncology.

The three-hour sessions allowed people to ask about breaking into the career and courses available.

Keren said: "It was a very good session – we were busy with questions right from the start. A lot of people were asking about admissions and the jobs available after graduation. The students got very involved and chipped in on a lot of questions. Hopefully we have inspired people to consider radiography as a career!"
