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. The Surrey academics are part of the Centre for Nuclear and Radiation Physics which houses the largest academic nuclear physics research group in the UK.

**What you will study**
Drawing upon our thorough expertise and excellent research, our 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 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 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.
