Whether you’re passionate about working directly with patients, or want to improve healthcare through data and technology, studying radiation sciences allows you to play an important role in shaping the future health landscape.
Through our Bachelor of Radiation Sciences, you’ll develop scientific and technical expertise, alongside an understanding of medical radiation science, the Australian health system and fundamentals of patient care.
With opportunities to immerse yourself in the latest technology, you’ll participate in 3D treatment simulations and learn how to use radiation therapy planning and medical imaging software. Within this course, you’ll have the choice of two specialisations: radiation sciences or informatics.
As a Bachelor of Radiation Sciences graduate, you can explore a range of exciting career opportunities where you’ll make a difference in health. These could include careers in cancer services, research, public health and health administration, informatics and health data. If you complete the radiation sciences specialisation, you can go onto graduate studies to become a qualified radiation therapist or sonographer.
On completion of the radiation sciences specialisation, you may be eligible for direct entry into our Master of Radiation Therapy program and can qualify as a registered radiation therapist in just 18 months.
Depending on your choice of specialisation, you can also pursue further graduate studies in medical ultrasound, public health, biotechnology, programming or databases.
