Distance Learning in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering

Our courses


The Medical Physics MSc programme at UCL originated in 1958 under Nobel Laurate Joseph Rotblat and since then has trained several hundred medical physicists who are now employed throughout the world. The course has continually evolved over the years to keep pace with ever changing advances in the field. The latest development of the course is to offer it off-campus through a distance learning version whereby busy professionals can fit their education around their work and personal commitments. Students of the course will receive the same qualification and education from UCL as students on site, as they experience the same learning experiences, achieve the same learning outcomes and complete the same practical and examination work. The distance learning stream admits around 12-15 high quality applicants per year from around the globe.

The MSc is the only distance-learning course accredited by the professional body, IPEM (The Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine).
