Course content

Established in 1972, Surrey’s MSc in Radiation and Environmental Protection is one of the UK’s longest running programmes in the field of nuclear science and its applications.

The programme is taught by a combination of world-leading nuclear physics academics and leading experts from the UK’s radiological protection and nuclear industries.

This programme will give you a thorough grounding in the radiation and environmental protection aspects of nuclear physics.

This includes in-depth knowledge of radiation protection, showing you how the technical and organisational procedures of the discipline may be applied to the broader concept of environmental protection. The substantial practical element of this programme enables you to relate taught material to real-world applications.

Formal lectures are complemented with work in specialist radiation laboratories that were recently refurbished as part of a £1m upgrade to our facilities. In these facilities you will work with a wide range of radioactive sources and radiation detectors.

There is also an extended project in the spring and an eleven-week MSc dissertation project in the summer.
