Senior secondary school qualification
Admission to our undergraduate degree programs usually requires successful completion of a senior secondary school qualification similar to the Higher School Certificate (HSC), the highest educational award in New South Wales schools.
Further education like diplomas and university study can also be assessed for admission.
Our nuclear medicine graduates are very employable and highly regarded. Many of our graduates have advanced rapidly in their careers and are now in management roles in Australia and overseas.
University of Newcastle nuclear medicine graduates are qualified to register and work as nuclear medical technologists, working closely with patients and other health professionals to diagnose life-threatening diseases such as cancer and help monitor a patient’s health. You may find yourself working in clinical positions in private and public hospitals, in upper management roles such as director of services, or in higher education and research roles.
