For details of admission requirements, please visit Find a Course

In addition to the academic admission requirements that are published on the Find a Course website, applicants will be required to complete FURTHER ASSESSMENT (February 2020). Students will be required to attend for a Situational Judgement Test (SJT).* The SJT is an computerised test  designed to assess how an individual would handle situations that they might encounter in their workplace. An SJT presents the test-taker with realistic, hypothetical scenarios and asks them to identify the most appropriate response or to rank the responses in the order they feel is most effective. Applicants should allow for up to 2.5 hours to complete all aspects of this process. Applicants who wish to be considered for the course must be available to undertake the SJT on the specified date. The SJT is administered under exam conditions. All applicants MUST attend in person at this time. The SJT cannot be reschedule or undertaken at alternate sites.

Please be advised that due to the structure of clinical placements, requests for deferral are not usually approved, and will be assessed on a case by case basis.  Applications will only be approved with supporting documentation for extenuating circumstances.

All applications for all postgraduate courses offered by the Department of Medical Imaging and Radiations Sciences, are ONLINE directly to the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences.

* Any applicants who re-apply for the Master of Radiation Therapy program, and have previously completed the SJT for this course at  Monash will not be required to sit the SJT again and their  previous SJT score will be used for re-ranking.

  • Secondary education
  • Tertiary education (if you have completed or are currently completing  a Monash degree you are not required to submit certified academic transcripts)
  • Proof of Australian citizenship, New Zealand citizenship or Australian permanent resident visa
  • Clinical Site Visit Verification form

NB: Original or certified copies of your supporting academic documents must  be provided to Monash University upon request and if you do not provide  them your enrolment may be cancelled. This may occur at course enrolment or at any time following commencement of the course.
