BSc (Hons) Diagnostic Radiography And Medical Imaging – Year 1: Induction information

Welcome

Welcome to Portsmouth and the first year of your degree. We hope you enjoyed the summer and are excited to start your new life at university.

Message from Professor Sherria Hoskins, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Science and Health

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Faculty of Science. Many things about our world are very different at the moment, but one thing that hasn't changed is our commitment to giving you a fantastic experience at University.

You'll soon get to know the other students on your course. Many of the friendships you make now will last a lifetime. And our staff are here to guide and support you to reach your potential.

This year, approximately 1,500 students graduated from one of our programmes. I feel immensely proud that we have made such a significant contribution to the pool of scientists and health practitioners.

Science and health studies represent an adventure of the mind, seeking truth that can make a difference to the world, as we have seen more than ever in recent times. I hope we give you an understanding of how to use your knowledge and an understanding of its intrinsic value to yourselves and others.

I also hope that we inspire you with confidence and curiosity throughout your studies so that you can go on to realise your own vision; to know the world as it is and be able to imagine it as it might be, to glimpse the possibilities of change, of improvement and of your contribution.

Staying safe on campus

We’ll have all appropriate safety measures and a few restrictions in place. And every building will be open in line with Government guidance – including teaching spaces, communal spaces, toilets, cafes and the library. For more information about how we're ensuring your safety on campus, head to the 'Campus and city life 2020/21' page.

Due to coronavirus, we've made some changes to teaching to keep you safe. You'll take part in most large teaching sessions online. And any face-to-face teaching will be in small groups with social distancing measures in place. We've set up sanitisation stations across campus, one-way systems in busy areas and protective screens at certain locations.

Due to changing circumstances as a result of the pandemic, we may need to make further changes to courses to ensure your safety and to ensure compliance with Government guidelines. We'll provide you with as much notice as possible of any such changes. Your course leader will inform you of these changes.

International and EU students 

If you're joining us from overseas, find out about our International Orientation events and what you need to do during your first week.

If you can't travel to the UK, or you don't feel safe to travel, your course's first teaching block will be delivered completely online. The majority of Orientation events will also be online, so you'll still be able to get involved in welcome talks and social activities, as well as meet other new students.

Meeting and working with other students

We'll encourage your to get to know other students online and use your Moodle forums to post any questions you have about the course. Your personal tutor group will be added to a Google Hangouts chat during Induction. 

Learn more about communicating online.

Welcome from Dr. Jason Oakley, Interim Head of School

I’d like to welcome you to the School of Health and Care Professions. This will not be quite the start to your time at university that you or we were expecting but even in these unusual times our aim will be to deliver the best learning experience possible and ensure that you all have the opportunity to meet the learning outcomes of your course. In the first few weeks of your course we will also provide virtual means for you to meet your fellow students and all of the staff. Your course teams will let you know about this in the first week.

Our staff are all experts in their subjects, approachable and have a philosophy of supporting students to achieve their individual potential, to become confident, independent learners with transferable skills that will serve them well for the rest of their lives. Your course teams will be available via a variety of means, but in whichever way they can, they are there to support you and you mustn’t hesitate to contact any of them if you have any questions.

I look forward to meeting you in person or virtually in the first few weeks of your course and would like to take this opportunity to wish you well with your studies.
