The Master of Cancer Sciences from the University of Melbourne is Australia’s first cancer-specific, multidisciplinary, flexible wholly online program.
Graduates will possess an unprecedented breadth of integrated cancer knowledge and skills to deliver best practice cancer care in research, clinical and academic environments.
Online graduate courses at the University of Melbourne run on a four-term structure rather than a semester structure which means students can enrol in January, April, June and September.
A masters-level qualification is essential to career progression in oncology and often required for professional accreditation. World-leading content experts from across the VCCC Alliance and the University of Melbourne have developed the Master of Cancer Sciences.
