About this course

Use your advanced research skills to contribute to new developments in medical radiation sciences.

The School of Health and Biomedical Sciences takes a multidisciplinary approach to offer you opportunities to conduct leading-edge medical radiations research.

Your research will be supported by excellent research facilities including specialised laboratories that promote a collaborative approach to science.

Under expert supervision, you will develop your skills and join researchers already active in:

  • nuclear medicine
  • medical physics
  • quantitative and qualitative projects in medical imaging
  • radiation therapy.

Entry requirements

The minimum requirements for admission to a PhD program are:

  • a bachelor degree requiring at least four years of full-time study in a relevant discipline awarded with honours. The degree should include a research component comprised of a thesis, other research projects or research methodology courses that constitute at least 25% of a full-time academic year (or part-time equivalent). The applicant must have achieved at least a distinction average in the final year; or
  • a master degree that includes a research component comprised of at least 25% of a full-time academic year (or part-time equivalent) with an overall distinction average or a master degree without a research component with at least a high distinction average; or
  • evidence of appropriate academic qualifications and/or experience that satisfies the Associate Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Research Training and Development or nominee that the applicant has developed knowledge of the field of study or cognate field and the potential for research sufficient to undertake the proposed program.

At RMIT a grade of distinction represents academic achievement of 70% or higher and a high distinction is 80% or higher.

If you are a current master by research candidate, you are able to apply for a transfer to a doctor of philosophy program through the process prescribed in the RMIT Higher Degree by Research policy and processes.
