Programinligting

Studente wat nie op voorgraadse vlak (d.i. vanaf die tweede studiejaar) in Stralingsterapie gespesialiseer het nie, registreer volgens hierdie leergang.

Toelatingsvereistes

  • Behoudens die bepalings van die Algemene Regulasies, is die BRad-graad of gelykwaardige kwalifikasie in die betrokke spesialiseringsrigting, asook registrasie as Radiograaf by die Raad vir Gesondheidsberoepe van Suid-Afrika 'n vereiste.
  • 'n Student moet 'n voltydse pos vir hierdie doel beklee by 'n instansie wat deur die Departement goedgekeur word.

 

Addisionele vereistes

Alle studente moet registreer vir NVB 700 Navorsingsbeginsels.

Sien ook die Algemene Regulasies.

Eksamens en slaagvereistes

'n Tweede eksamengeleentheid kan in modules wat nie geslaag is nie, toegestaan word, ooreenkomstig die bepalings van die Skool vir Gesondheidsorgwetenskappe in die verband.

Slaag met lof

Die graad word met lof toegeken aan 'n student wat 'n gesamentlike gemiddelde van minstens 75% in al die modules vir die graad behaal het.

Minimum krediete: 120
