About

This four-year Medical Physics programme at University College London (UCL) offers an extra year over the Physics with Medical Physics BSc in which you will extend your knowledge by taking additional advanced modules. You are advised to apply for the MSci programme initially but transfer between the BSc and MSci is possible during the first two years.

Overview

Degree benefits

  • We have close links to several major teaching hospitals and our staff work side-by-side with doctors and health professionals.
  • With our highly rated research, the expert knowledge of our staff will be of direct benefit in the lectures and teaching sessions you attend.
  • Most medical physics classes are small (fewer than 35 students) providing you with an informal, interactive teaching environment in which you can easily raise questions.
  • The Medical Physics programme is accredited by the Institute of Physics (IOP) providing the first step to chartered physicist status.

Careers

Our degrees are accredited by the Institute of Physics and, as well as a career in medical physics, you will have access to the same wide diversity of careers as with any other University College London (UCL) physics degree.

Physicists tend to be logical, numerate problem solvers and there is a demand for people who have developed such skills in a wide range of careers. Following a degree in medical physics, students tend to pursue careers in clinical, industry or research settings.

Medical physicists can work in hospitals directly with clinicans and their patients, or take a research approach and develop new techniques and technologies within industry or academia.
