About

The Physics, Medical Physics and Radiation Protection (Hons) course from University of Malta is a taught programme in Physics and its most attractive applications in society at present – Medical Physics and Radiation Protection. 

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Students in the Physics, Medical Physics and Radiation Protection (Hons) course from University of Malta  will acquire knowledge and cognitive and practical skills through the study of course material, participation in discussions, physics practical work, computational tasks, project work, demonstrations of practical onsite medical physics and radiation protection practices and participation in medical physics and radiation protection practice placements in hospital. 

Of central importance is the ongoing emphasis towards the acquisition of a capacity for formulation of hypotheses from observation, mathematical modelling and the applications of physics concepts to real world problem solving in particular (though not exclusively) in the fields of Medical Physics and Radiation Protection. 

Students will study with students from both the Faculty of Science and also from the Faculty of Health Sciences to ensure that they are capable of bridging the gap between pure and applied physics. The course is future looking and very multidisciplinary and includes not only physics, mathematics, medical physics and radiation protection but also essential anatomy, physiology, ICT, ethics, management and legal issues.

Career opportunities and access to further studies

This programme leads to graduates who following further specialized education and/or training can be employed/read for higher degrees/carry out research in Physics, Medical Physics, Radiation Protection and the Medical Device industry; the latter is an area of economic growth for Malta.

This programme has sufficient built-in flexibility to allow students to pursue specialisations or careers even outside Medical Physics/Radiation Protection. For instance, given their strong physics and mathematical background, graduates of this programme can work in R&D labs in industry or government/public authorities/consultancy. 

A strong demand from the gaming industry, in the financial and insurance sectors for students with the transferable skills that are acquired by students following this programmes in physics, mathematics and statistics, guarantees even further employability and excellent postgraduate possibilities.
