Description

The Radiopharmaceutics & PET Radiochemistry course will provide you with opportunities to develop your knowledge, understanding and skills in the principles and practice of radiopharmaceutical science.

The course is made up of optional and required modules. The MSc pathway requires modules totalling 180 credits to complete the programme, 60 of which will come from a research project. You will complete the course in one year, from September to September.

Course format and assessment

Teaching

We use lectures, tutorials and laboratory practicals to deliver most of the modules on the programme. You will also be expected to undertake a significant amount of independent study.

 Each 30-credit module typically requires attendance at lectures/tutorials (80%) and labs (20%) for 24 full days. Each of these full days’ will include at least six hours of contact time.

Typically, one credit equates to 10 hours of work.

Assessment

The course is assessed by a variety of mechanisms including:

  • Unseen written examinations
  • Practical laboratory work and reports
  • Case studies and oral presentations
  • Workshops
  • Audio-visual presentations
  • Laboratory/ library-based research projects

The study time and assessment methods detailed above are typical and give you a good indication of what to expect. However, they may change if the course modules change.  

Career prospects

Expected destinations are the NHS and commercial nuclear medicine services, the pharmaceutical industry or PhD research.
