This program is designed for practising medical radiation scientists to advance both their technological expertise and academic understanding of their chosen specialisation.

Designed for

Clinical practitioners in Medical Radiation Science field


The 96-point Master of Medical Radiation Science program is made up of a generic Master of Medical Radiation Science course and specialisations in Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Radiographic Image Interpretation, Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging. Each is run by distance education mode. The CT and MRI specialisations comprise both DE and Internal programs, with the latter catering to targeted groups of international and domestic clientele. The generic course and each DE specialisation consist of core compulsory subjects, along with a small group of restricted electives. In contrast to the specialisations, the generic course has only a small number of core subjects and a large number of restricted electives. The Internal versions of the CT and MRI specialisations only contain compulsory core subjects with no electives.


  • Computed tomography
  • Magnetic resonance imaging
  • Molecular Imaging
  • Nuclear medicine
  • Radiographic image interpretation

Standard entry requirements

The three levels of admission into the Masters course will be referred to as Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3, for zero-point, 16-point and 32-point entry credit, respectively. The requirements for admission into the Masters course will vary with each level of entry, as well as with the chosen specialisation. These requirements are detailed below.All applicants must possess a Statement of Accreditation (issued by the AIR or the ANZSNM), (or equivalent, for medical radiation science applicants from overseas). Applicants from acceptable non medical imaging/nuclear medicine backgrounds (see Level 1 admission criteria for the Generic course and RII specialisation below) must also be accredited in their fields.

Study pathways

On completion of 64 points of study (including any credit granted), students may elect to exit the course with a Graduate Diploma.
