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 radiation therapy graduates are very employable and highly regarded. 94% of our graduates find work before, or soon after, finishing their studies (Quality Indicators of Learning and Teaching 2018).
University of Newcastle radiation therapy graduates are qualified to register and work as radiation therapists, health care professionals who use anatomical and functional imaging studies to design courses of treatment for patients with malignant disease. Radiation therapists also use a range of advanced technology to implement daily treatment.
Take a look below for some common roles for medical radiation science graduates.
