The Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Radiation Science and Technology is intended for students with knowledge and understanding on nuclear sciences, the principals involved in the interaction of the different kinds of matter. This programme will also focus on and cover commercial applications, of nuclear techniques in the fields of energy, agriculture and water resource management, biology and medicine, environmental and nuclear waste minimisation and nuclear security.
Candidates will be considered for admission to the Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Radiation Science and Technology programme if they have a Bachelor of Science degree which incorporates physics or chemistry as a major subject. It is strongly recommended that chemistry or physics as a minor subject in the above mentioned Bachelor of Science degree should be at a second year level (NQF Level 6). An equivalent qualification at NQF Level 7 which incorporates one or more of the following disciplines: biology, biochemistry, geology and mathematics, will be evaluated on an individual basis at the discretion of the department/ Postgraduate Committee for suitability of admission.
