Course summary

This course is accredited by The National School of Healthcare and Science, The Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine, and The Register of Clinical Technologists. Our BSc in Radiation Physics will give you the expert training you need to begin a rewarding and highly skilled career in the healthcare profession as a radiation physicist.

You will learn about the clinical uses of x-rays, radioactive materials, lasers, and ultraviolet radiation in imaging patients, diagnosing and treating disease, and monitoring patients’ response to treatment. You will also gain a clear understanding of the laws and regulations around the clinical use of radiation and the principles of risk assessment and management.

The structure of our course means that you will combine in-depth academic work with practical skills in a range of specialised healthcare settings. Radiation Physics is a vital field of medicine requiring a high level of responsibility and technical skill. As a radiation physicist, you will use sophisticated equipment to measure and calculate the doses of radiation received by patients during treatment and by the staff delivering it. As your career progresses, you will have excellent opportunities for advanced practice and further study to Masters and doctoral level.
