Physics and Engineering in Medicine by Distance Learning MSc

This programme pathway is identical to the campus-delivered Radiation Physics stream but is designed for students who are unable to travel to London because of their work duties or international location. Teaching is delivered for each module via video lectures, top-up online tutorials and additional e-learning resources, with coursework and supervised examinations which are arranged locally.

Entry requirements

A minimum of a 2nd Class UK Honours degree from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard in physics, engineering, computer science, mathematics, or other closely related discipline. Workplace knowledge and expertise are also considered. Applicants with a lower than 2nd Class degree may be invited for a short online interview with programme tutors as part of their application process.

Course modules

Core modules: clinical practice; computing in medicine; ionising radiation physics (interactions and dosimetry); magnetic resonance imaging and biomedical optics; medical imaging (ionising); research project; treatment with ionising radiation; ultrasound in medicine; viva module.

Assessment methods

The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, demonstrations, tutorials, assignments and a research project. Lecturers are drawn from UCL and from London teaching hospitals including UCLH, St. Bartholomew's, and the Royal Free Hospital. Assessment is through supervised examination, coursework and assignments, a research dissertation and an oral examination.
