Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES)

Launched in 2009, the HEA's annual PTES is the only sector-wide survey to gain insight from taught postgraduate students about their learning and teaching experience.

The survey focuses on students' experiences regarding

  • Teaching and learning
  • Engagement
  • Assessment and Feedback
  • Organisation and Management
  • Resources and Services
  • Skills Development

The School of Physics and Astronomy is proud that 96% of students on the MSc in Nuclear Science and Technology are satisfied overall with the course.

Coursework and assessment

Assessment is by written examination, assignment and end of year project/dissertation.

Course unit details

This modular programme is available on either a full-time or part-time basis. The mode of study can be either direct taught, distance learning, or a combination of both.

It addresses a broad range of disciplines in Nuclear Science & Technology it is particularly concerned with ongoing liabilities and the nuclear legacy and is designed to assist companies and individuals in meeting the challenge of this important industry.

The part-time programme option offers the opportunity for employees to gain a postgraduate qualification whilst remaining in full-time employment.

Part-time MSc taken over 3 years:

Year 1:  4 modules (Successful completion attains Postgraduate Certificate)

Year 2:  4 modules (Successful completion attains Postgraduate Diploma)

Year 3:  Project & Dissertation (Successful completion attains MSc)

Part-time MSc taken over 2 years:

8 modules are taken over the two year period with the project and dissertation also being completed in the second year.

Full-time MSc taken over 1 year:

8 modules are taken over a period of approximately 9 months. The project and dissertation then follows.

About the course

Run in partnership with fellow members of the Nuclear Technology Education Consortium (NTEC), Birmingham, Leeds, London and Manchester, the course gives you access to more than 90 per cent of the UK’s academic expertise in nuclear waste immobilisation, decommissioning and clean-up.

You’ll be based in the department’s world-leading NucleUS Immobilisation Science Laboratory, and will take eight modules on the nuclear fuel cycle. Topics include reactor materials and nuclear waste management with each module including one week at one of our partner universities.

A welcoming department

A friendly, forward-thinking community, our students and staff are on hand to welcome you to the department and ensure you settle into student life.

Your project supervisor will support you throughout your course. Plus you’ll have access to our extensive network of alumni, offering industry insight and valuable career advice to support your own career pathway.

Your career

Prospective employers recognise the value of our courses, and know that our students can apply their knowledge to industry. Our graduates work for organisations including Airbus, Rolls-Royce, the National Nuclear Laboratory and Saint-Gobain. Roles include materials development engineer, reactor engineer and research manager. They also work in academia in the UK and abroad.

90 per cent of our graduates are employed or in further study 6 months after graduating, with an average starting salary of £27,000, the highest being £50,000.

Equipment and facilities

We have invested in extensive, world-class equipment and facilities to provide a stimulating learning environment. Our laboratories are equipped to a high standard, with specialist facilities for each area of research.

Materials processing

Tools and production facilities for materials processing, fabrication and testing, including wet chemical processing for ceramics and polymers, rapid solidification and water atomisation for nanoscale metallic materials, and extensive facilities for deposition of functional and structural coatings.

Radioactive nuclear waste and disposal

Our £3million advanced nuclear materials research facility provides a high-quality environment for research on radioactive waste and disposal. Our unique thermomechanical compression and arbitrary strain path equipment is used for simulation of hot deformation.

Characterisation

You’ll have access to newly refurbished array of microscopy and analysis equipment, x-ray facilities, and surface analysis techniques covering state-of-the-art XPS and SIMS. There are also laboratories for cell and tissue culture, and facilities for measuring electrical, magnetic and mechanical properties.

The Kroto Research Institute and the Nanoscience and Technology Centre enhance our capabilities in materials fabrication and characterisation, and we have a computer cluster for modelling from the atomistic through nano and mesoscopic to the macroscopic.

Stimulating learning environment

An interdisciplinary research-led department; our network of world leading academics at the cutting edge of their research inform our courses providing a stimulating, dynamic environment in which to study.

Teaching and assessment

Working alongside students and staff from across the globe, you’ll tackle real-world projects, and attend lectures, seminars and laboratory classes delivered by academic and industry experts.

You’ll be assessed by formal examinations, coursework assignments and a dissertation.

Sample modules

Processing, Storage and Disposal of Nuclear Waste; Nuclear Fuel Cycle; Reactor Physics and Criticality; Risk Management.
