Course content

The programme aims to provide a thorough grounding in radiation protection and to show how the technical and organisational procedures of the discipline may be applied to the broader concept of environmental protection. The substantial practical element of the programme enables the student to relate taught material to its real-world application.

As well as attending formal lectures, you will carry out work in radiation laboratories. There is also an extended project in the spring and an eleven-week MSc dissertation project in the summer. You will use a wide range of radioactive sources and radiation detectors.
