English Proficiency Requirements
All applicants must satisfy the UQ English language proficiency requirements for admission.
If you've completed previous study, you may be eligible to receive credit for – or exemption from – certain subjects in a UQ program. Assessment of prior learning and the granting of credit or exemption will be consistent with the Recognition of Prior Learning Policy (limits in section 2.4).
This program is designed to equip the student with a good understanding of the fundamentals of magnetic resonance technology. The four core courses cover the physics of magnetic resonance and image formation, the components of modern day magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners and safety considerations within this specialised field. This program is useful for those wanting formal qualifications in this rapidly expanding field.
Access to a MRI scanner is NOT required for this award.
