Nuclear Science and Technology MSc


Course Description

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.
