Why study Radiation Therapy at the University of Newcastle

A radiation therapy degree at the University of Newcastle gives students a distinct career advantage.  

Radiation therapy is one of the key treatments for patients diagnosed with cancer, integrating patient focused treatment and care with high end technology.

As a radiation therapy student, you will work with sophisticated computer based systems on and off campus and constantly emerging technologies that help image and treat patients. You will participate in researching, testing and implementing new imaging and putting treatment equipment into practice.

The medical radiation science degree will also teach you to be a good communicator who is focused on the well-being of patients that are in your care for an extended period of time. You will learn to communicate closely and extensively with patients and their families, and collaborate with a range of other health professionals.

We focus learning around patient and clinical scenarios, where you will work closely with other students to solve the types of problems that are encountered in clinical practice.

Radiation therapy graduates from the University of Newcastle are very employable and are highly regarded, with many of our graduates finding employment in radiology prior to or soon after finishing their studies.

This degree is accredited by the Australian Institute of Radiography and graduates will be eligible to apply for registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
