Due to the impact of COVID-19 we're changing how the course is delivered
Delivered by a consortium of ten universities and institutes, this full- or part-time programme will give you access to more than 90% of the UK’s nuclear teaching expertise.
For the MSc you’ll be asked to choose four core modules and four elective modules, and to complete a project and dissertation to the value of 180 credits.
We’ve grouped the modules in streams to accommodate students’ different interests. To complete each will take approximately 150 hours of work, including one week’s direct teaching.
It’s also possible to qualify for a Diploma (120 credits) by completing the four core modules plus four elective modules; or a Certificate (60 credits) by completig the four core modules.
