Our talk

Radiotherapy and Oncology (BSc) Admissions Tutor, Paul Brown, provides an overview of the course - from how it is structured, to tips on how to apply.

I love studying radiotherapy at Cardiff because it’s a combination of academic and clinical learning. You could be studying the oncology of an organ one week and the next week you’ll be putting your knowledge to practice in department.
