Admission Criteria

CSU Admission Policy

Master of Medical Radiation Science (with specialisations)

All students enter the Master of Medical Radiation Science (with specialisations), once admitted to the course they can elect to transfer to a specialisation or remain in the generic course (i.e. complete without a specialisation). Student can only complete one specialisation.


To be eligible for admission to this course students must:

  • hold a minimum of an AQF 7 degree in medical radiation science;
  • have registration as a Medical Radiation Scientist with the Australian Health Professional Regulation Agency. International students should provide evidence of registration with local authorities;
  • have completed a minimum of 1 year full-time employment as a medical radiation scientist.

Applicants considering the computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) specialisations are expected to have had clinical experience with these modalities.
