- About Us
Technological advances and developments in physics and medicine, particularly in radiology, radiotherapy and nuclear medical physics have created a demand for Qualified Medical Physicists to support the current progress in the healthcare sector. Healthcare providers rely heavily on continued education and training of medical physicists in order to achieve and maintain international health standards.
The MSc in Medical Physics was developed to:
The MSc programme is offered full-time over 18 months (three semesters) or part-time for 24-months in line with the University’s academic year. The duration of the Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) is 9 months (2 semesters).
Courses will be delivered in block mode on evenings and/or weekends to facilitate working professionals.
The curriculum consists of three modules:
A total of 48 credits are required for the award of the degree with an overall average mark of 50% and at least 50% in the Research Project.
This includes the Level I and Level II courses from the MSc programme taken over two semesters.
A total of 24 credits is needed, with an overall average mark of 50%.
