Graduate destination

Graduates of the Bachelor’s study programme Radiology Assistant (Imaging Methods and Application of Ionizing Radiation) work as independent professionals in all settings that make use of or measure ionizing radiation, nuclear magnetic resonance, or ultrasound technology, whether for diagnostic imaging or therapy. They can work in both state and private healthcare institutions (especially in X-ray, radiotherapy, and nuclear medicine departments), veterinary institutions, research laboratories, and in a variety of private companies as well as in practical instruction. Graduates of this programme will also find employment abroad.

“Although I applied for some other universities in Europe, when I saw Brno and uni for the first time, I knew I wanted to study there. I immediately fell in love with Brno – everywhere were a lot of students and young people and also, Brno was not a big city, it has the ideal size enriched with culture and life. Masaryk University has good ranking. I also liked the university environment - during the open day tour, my parents and I were really impressed with all the study departments, biochemistry labs and libraries.”
