Our medical imaging science degrees are taught entirely online by distance education and are tailored to meet the needs of busy professionals. No matter where you live – in Australia or internationally – you can gain a qualification in medical imaging science with us.
Your learning will take place via online lectures, webinars and discussion forums and you will have access to an extensive online library containing e-textbooks, e-journals and video resources. Students have remote access to a computed tomography (CT) scanner and a magnetic imaging system to complete tutorial work and develop a deeper understanding of the essential physics of CT and MRI.
As a medical imaging science student, you can study in your own time and at your own pace. Flexible enrolment allows you to fit your study around family, work and social commitments. You can also spread the cost. You will only be charged for the number of units of study in which you enrol each semester.
