Course summary

Why choose this course

How can atomic nuclei provide us with energy, help us monitor the environment, benefit medicine and more?

Our new and innovative MSc in Nuclear Science and Applications is taught by a combination of inspired nuclear physics academics from Surrey’s Department of Physics and forward-looking experts from the UK’s nuclear industries.

What you will study

Drawing upon our thorough expertise and excellent research, this course will give you a deep knowledge of nuclear science and its applications.

The substantial practical element of this course enables you to relate taught material to industry-relevant applications. Formal lectures are complemented with work in our specialist radiation laboratories, which were recently refurbished as part of a £1m upgrade to our facilities. Here, you'll work with a wide range of radioactive sources and radiation detectors.

There’s also an extended project in the spring and an 11-week MSc dissertation project in the summer, and students will have the opportunity to complete their dissertation on a topic specialising in nuclear research.

Careers and graduate prospects

We offer careers information, advice and guidance to all students whilst studying with us, which is extended to our alumni for three years after leaving the University.

As a graduate of this course, you’ll have job opportunities in the nuclear industry, a growing and international sector.

The course also naturally leads into further study, such as completing a PhD.
