The University of Surrey’s new MSc in Nuclear Science and Applications combines theory with practice to provide an in-depth grounding in nuclear science, leading to strong job opportunities in the fast-growing global nuclear industries.
This innovative programme draws on the University’s partnership with the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and enables students to benefit from NPL’s specialist facilities. It is taught by world-leading academics from Surrey’s Centre for Nuclear and Radiation Physics (the largest research group in this field in the UK) and experts from the UK’s nuclear industries.
One of the distinctive features of the MSc is its substantial practical element. Students work with a wide range of radioactive sources and radiation detectors in our £1m refurbished radiation laboratories, and undertake an extended group project and an 11 week dissertation in a nuclear science research topic.
Physics MSc programmes at Surrey
The new MSc builds on a range of postgraduate taught programmes offered by Surrey’s Department of Physics:
MSc Radiation and Environmental Protection
one of the UK’s longest running programmes in its field, this programme provides a thorough grounding in the radiation and environmental protection aspects of nuclear physics.
a broad-ranging programme enabling students to tailor their studies to their own interests and build on Surrey’s research strengths across many
areas of physics.
MSc Medical Physics
accredited by IPEM (Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine), this well-established and internationally renowned programme has trained around 1,000 medical physicists to date.
We also offer a two-year MSc Medical Physics (Euromasters) and MSc Physics (Euromasters), which combine expanded course content with an eight month research project.
As part of its commitment to Continuing Professional Development (CPD), from spring 2017 Surrey will offer short CPD courses in physics, enabling people already working in industry to benefit from our advanced specialised modules.
