Course content

The Postgraduate Certificate in Nuclear Safety aims to develop a knowledge and awareness of the planning and regulations related to nuclear safety.

The nuclear industry will continue to provide a significant proportion of the UK's energy needs over the next ten years and this percentage will increase as new nuclear power stations come on stream at the end of this decade and beyond. UCLan has forged strong relationships with nuclear employers such as Sellafield Ltd, National Nuclear Laboratory, BAE Systems at Barrow and Westinghouse Ltd.

The PGCert in Nuclear Safety has been uniquely designed and is delivered from a UCLan campus, offering employees already working within the sector and assisting employer led provisions, a flexible programme to fit in around their work patterns. Access to those people from the general engineering sector is also being encouraged.
