What's the difference between Radiation Sciences and Radiography and Medical Imaging, and which one is more geared towards treating cancer patients?

Hi there! Iím currently in third year of radiography at Monash. Radiography is more about taking medical imaging procedures, such as x-rays, CT, MRI, mammograms, operation work, trauma scans and procedures under fluoroscopy such as angiograms and injections. Itís a 4 year bachelor/honours degree, you get an internship and a lot of practical experience. Personally I think itís a great career!

Radiation sciences is a bachelor degree that comes under the bachelor of health sciences- this encompasses four primary courses. I believe first year is a fairly general year of health, while second and third year look more at the process of radiation therapy. Please do note that you do not graduate as a professional with this degree. It will enable you to enter a master of radiation therapy which will allow you to practice, but you do also get some practical experience in the later years of this course. However, from this course you can also masters in practical sonography, or even get into either masters from the radiography course. I believe now radiation science is commonly used for students as a pathway into radiography (as biomedical is to med), but if youíre looking at radiation therapy (which means treating cancer patients), it is a great option to give you experience and background in the field. I would highly recommend doing a tour of some radiology clinics or departments as well as radiation therapy and see which field youíd prefer. Radiation therapy is a very small field but I believe is expanding so do some research ask questions of people studying (feel free to pm me I know lots of people in both degrees I can put you in contact with!) to see what path you want to take. Iím looking at radiation therapy after working in radiography for some years too so if youíd like any more information donít hesitate to ask! :)

Ultimately itís up to you, the marks for radiography have also gone up insanely haha and if you are looking at entering RT early, having that background experience with the radiation sciences course would be a great option to consider :)

Hey! So I'm doing French Proficient (ATS 2065 + 2066) this year and I read something about a 'course reader' on one of the subject reviews? Apparently there's a new one each year. There's nothing about it on my booklist though - any idea when/if I can get any information about this?
Try checking the booklist again closer to semester and, if possible, check out the bookshop on campus to see if there is one. You can also probably ask on the Moodle forums or typing an email to the unit coordinators and ask. Course readers in Arts units generally are lecturer-made notes and/or a collection of readings, so they tend to change with each year with any changes in the curriculum or minor edits due to printing errors and so forth.

Unfortunately, I've never done French, so I can't answer the second question you had. Hopefully someone else can though!

Hey again,
I just got an email saying that one of my Wednesday tutorials have been cancelled and I have to change to another one due to Ďlow enrolment numbersí. This is suuuuuper annoying because my timetable was pretty much perfect. Anyway, I am able to change all my Wednesday tutorials to Friday, but there is one lecture that is only on Wednesdays. Should I just allocate myself to the learning capture thing so that I donít have to show up to it and I can just watch the recordings? Thanks!

That's what I'd do unless you live super close - or watch the livestreams if that's an option so you're less likely to procrastinate it

Thanks! Yeah I donít live very close so it would be too much of an inconvenience to show up for only one hour on Wednesdays. Watching the streams is also an option, thanks again.

Thanks so much. I kinda tinkered around looking for it.
Came across this link

and did search news but I didn't scroll down enough to get to the news feed.

There's none specifically for the Monash Google account, but there is a whole bunch of policies regarding computer and internet use, which you can find here.
In saying that, use the Monash Google account and various other accounts responsibly (and, preferably, professionally).

Hey guys,

Im graduating next year but I'm already considering uni options right now... yikes!

My question is if I get a high ATAR and want to get into a course that has prerequisites that I don't study... will you still accept me?

For example, the course I want to get into is bachelor of commerce, which requires a prerequisite of 25 SS in methods. Only problem is I'm not doing methods but if I get a high ATAR will you still accept me?

Thanks in advance :)

prerequisites are probably the most inflexible of things out of the entry requirements so it is very unlikely that you will be offered a place in  a course that you don't fulfil prerequisites in - the only way to get in is that you would have to do some sort of bridging course that covers methods and have it accepted/verified by Monash. On the other hand, you can usually get in with ATARs lower than the stated required.

if I get accepted into the Monash extension program studying accounting and finance, I'll get credit for bachelor of commerce... will those credits be enough for me to get into the course without having studied methods?

No I don't think so. As someone who completed MUEP in 2016 it doesn't give you priority in obtaining a position in a course or able to bypass prerequisites although you can allow it to count to your course.

If you're specifically after a BComm at Monash, then I'd recommend:
(1) going to another uni which doesn't have a Methods prereq
(2) take the Methods bridging course, as Sine mentioned
(3) you could study a BBusiness at Monash (assuming you 25+ raw SS Further instead) and use your electives to cover the methods prereq*.

If you use the first or third route and you achieve good uni grades (usually 70+ WAM, but sometimes 75+ WAM due to competition), you might be able to transfer into the BComm at Monash after a semester or two.

*Not entirely sure this third way works, despite hearing that it might, so call Monash Connect directly about this to be 100% certain.
