Bachelor of Health Science (Medical Imaging) Unitec Institute of Technology

New Zealand



Course info


This programme will develop your skills in diagnostic imaging through applied thinking and doing, so you can safely use radiation to obtain images for diagnostic use.

The Bachelor of Health Science (Medical Imaging) provides you with the clinical and theoretical knowledge to work as a medical imaging technologist (MIT). To safely obtain images using radiation for diagnostic use, you need a sound understanding of anatomy, physiology, pathology, physics, and the medical radiation equipment and clinical techniques you will use in the industry. We'll help you develop these skills so you complete your degree confident and work-ready. You'll also get an introduction to more advanced imaging systems.


  • At Unitec, we think the best way to learn is a mixture of thinking and doing. You'll spend over 2000 hours (in block periods of time) across all three years of your degree gaining clinical experience working in a radiology/x-ray department, as well as developing your medical knowledge so you can easily transition to the workplace. Our staff will help you find suitable clinical placements, which may be in Auckland, as well as other regional centres throughout New Zealand.
  • Accredited by the New Zealand Medical Radiation Technologists Board (MRTB).
  • Leads to industry registration: once you've completed this programme you can apply for registration with the New Zealand Medical Radiation Technologists Board (MRTB).
  • This programme is an internationally recognised qualification.
  • Highly qualified teaching staff with extensive first-hand experience of clinical provision and discipline need.

Clinical placements

This programme includes over 2000 hours of work experience via clinical placements.

  • Year 1: 1 x 12-week block
  • Year 2: 2 x 10-week blocks
  • Year 3: 1 x 10-week block and 1 x 11-week block

Accommodation and travel are not included as part of your fees, therefore you'll need to cover all costs associated with these (if necessary) in order to attend the clinic to which you have been assigned.

Overseas registration

Once you've graduated, you'll have the option of pursuing a career in New Zealand, or overseas. If you are looking to work overseas as a qualified MIT, each country's registration body has its own system of determining eligibility. However, they all require hard copies of your course descriptors signed by the Academic Programme manager. There is an administration charge for requesting these. Please complete the request form below in order to initiate this process.
