Degree Programmes

MSc in Physics and Engineering in Medicine:
Our new degree combines the previous MSc degrees in Radiation Physics (RP), Biomedical Engineering & Medical Imaging (BEMI) and Medical Image Computing (MIC). The two well-established streams (RP and BEMI) still exist but a further degree of choice has been added.

MSc in Physics and Engineering in Medicine (distance learning):
In 2011 we launched a new distance-learning MSc degree, which is equivalent to our MSc in Physics and Engineering in Medicine. To receive more information, please email distance-enquiries@medphys.ucl.ac.uk.

Important note for overseas students

The Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) was introduced by the British Government in November 2007 is a new mandatory requirement for postgraduate students. You will need an ATAS certificate if you are a non EU/EEA (including Switzerland) citizen and intend to undertake graduate study in the Department of Medical Physics and Bioengineering.

For more details, see UCL's requirements, and the Foreign Office's requirements.
