Content

The Masters in Nuclear and Environmental Physics provides training in the physics and applications of nuclear energy generation (and low-carbon energy more generally), and the roles played by nuclear processes in environmental modelling and medical physics. It is an ideal qualification for a professional physicist aiming to work in these sectors. Students are provided with the theoretical, experimental and computational skills necessary to analyse and solve a variety of advanced physics problems relevant to this range of important global industries.

The programme builds on a wide range of advanced Masters-level courses in the School of Physics and Astronomy: from taught courses in energy generation and environmental physics to practical skills in radiation-detection, research skills, data analysis, and an extended research project in relevant areas. Students have the flexibility to tailor their experience through a choice of additional elective lecture courses.

Entry Requirements

2:1 Honours degree or equivalent in Physics. Applications are also welcome from candidates with a 2:2 in these subject areas, additional industrial experience.
