  • completed a Diploma plus 8 years full-time paid work experience at managerial or professional level or a professional membership

  • completed Year 12 or a Certificate IV plus 10 years full-time paid work experience at managerial or professional level or a professional membership.

Professional memberships must be of an appropriate, recognised professional body in one of the following fields: pharmacy, accounting, speech therapy, urban and regional planning, occupational therapy, actuarial studies, physiotherapy, engineering, law or surveying.

Course Information

An accelerated diagnostic radiography pathway

If you’re a graduate but considering a career change, then the UC Master of Medical Imaging course offers an accelerated learning program that condenses a comprehensive three-year course into an internationally recognised Medical Imaging qualification in only 2.5 years.

Highly focused, engaging and interactive, the UC Master of Imaging course will help you become proficient in diagnostic radiography graduating six months earlier – thus gaining a highly competitive advantage over other similar courses elsewhere.

Successful completion of the course will allow you to apply for registration to practice as a Diagnostic Radiographer from the Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia (MRPBA) and you’ll be ready to forge ahead in your career as a competent and professional diagnostic radiographer.

The UC Master of Medical Imaging is an approved program of study by the Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia (MRPBA) allowing graduates to gain registration as a diagnostic radiographer for employment in both public hospitals and private radiology practices in any state or territory in Australia and around the world.

The course is highly career-focused and includes ongoing Work Integrated Learning (WIL), offering specialised opportunities across multiple fields of diagnostic radiography, such as general radiography, mammography, angiography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) and medical ultrasound.
