UCL (University College London)

Course Introduction

This programme pathway is designed for students with a developing interest in radiation physics, both ionising and non'ionising, that underpin many of the imaging and treatment technologies applied in modern medicine. Students gain an understanding of scientific principles and practices that are used in hospitals, industries and research laboratories through lectures, problem'solving sessions, a research project and collaborative work.

Course Modules

Core modules: clinical practice; medical imaging (ionising); ultrasound in medicine; magnetic resonance imaging and biomedical optics; research project; viva module; computing in medicine; ionising radiation physics: interactions and dosimetry; treatment with ionising Radiation. Options: aspects of biomedical engineering; optics in medicine; medical devices and applications.

Course Additional Entry

A minimum of a 2nd Class Honours degree from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard in physics, engineering, computer science, mathematics, or another closely related discipline, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Workplace knowledge and expertise are also considered. Applicants with a lower than 2nd Class degree may be invited for a short online interview with course tutors as part of their application process.
