Recognition & Prospects

Recognition and Prospects

Professional Recognition

Graduates are eligible for registration in Part Two of the Register of the Radiographers Board of Hong Kong. They are also recognised by many overseas registration bodies, including those in the UK, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia (after gaining 1 year of clinical experience).


Career Prospects

Our graduates can find employment with the Hospital Authority, which recognises the degree as an entry qualification.


Employment opportunities are also available in private hospitals, in clinics and laboratories, and in the commercial sector. As the degree is recognised in many countries, many of our graduates take up employment in Australia, Canada, the UK, New Zealand, and Singapore.

Student Message

Student Message

Studying at PolyU is a wonderful experience. I have acquired the knowledge and vision to realise my future career, thanks in part to our unlimited access to excellent resources. Through studying Radiography, I hope to provide better medical care to the public. The support and resources provided by the great mentors and platforms at PolyU have enabled me to design an easily accessible (portable) body-scanning device with guidance from professional technology experts. I am particularly grateful that PolyU encourages its students not only to learn but also to apply their knowledge for the benefit of mankind.

Man Yui Kuen, Jacky

The Department of Health Technology and Informatics imparts high-quality knowledge and teaches practical skills. Furthermore, it offers a variety of placement opportunities for students, enabling them to apply their knowledge and skills in practical settings. The comprehensive training and encouragement provided by teaching staff means that from Year 2 onwards, students are able to work as student radiographers in public hospitals managed by the Hong Kong Hospital Authority.


PolyU fuels its students to develop their talents and realise their aspirations. This encouragement drove me to step out of my comfort zone in Year 1  by participating in an overseas Service-Learning programme to teach English in Cambodia. This was an unforgettable trip, which connected me with another part of the world and helped me to fulfil my responsibility as a global citizen. PolyU is the perfect place to cultivate whole-person development, and I cannot wait to broaden my horizons and sharpen my competitive edge in my future years at the University.
