Course summary

This four-year programme offers an extra year over the Physics with Medical Physics BSc in which you will extend your knowledge by taking additional advanced modules. You are advised to apply for the MSci programme initially but transfer between the BSc and MSci is possible during the first two years.

Your learning

As well as attending lectures, you will also participate in tutorials and practical work, including projects. Projects are conducted in active, well-equipped research groups, often involving collaborations with local hospitals. Many medical physics lectures and projects are taken by a mix of medical physics and medical students, reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of the work performed in hospitals and universities.

Assessment

Modules are normally assessed by a combination of coursework and end-of-year examination.

Careers

Our degrees are accredited by the Institute of Physics and, as well as a career in medical physics, you will have access to the same wide diversity of careers as with any other UCL physics degree.

Physicists tend to be logical, numerate problem solvers and there is a demand for people who have developed such skills in a wide range of careers. If you are focusing on a career in medical physics, there are three main paths.

Firstly, you can train as a medical physicist in the health service. Secondly, you can follow a career in industry: MRI scanners, radiotherapy equipment, and physiological monitoring equipment, for example, all need researching, manufacturing, supplying and maintaining. Thirdly, you may pursue a career in research, probably initially by taking a higher degree - an MSc or a PhD.
