MSc in Medical Physics and Bioengineering
Our Masters courses
We offer two MSc degree courses:
- MSc in Physics and Engineering in Medicine provides a thorough understanding of the whole of medical physics and bioengineering and is intended for students with a first degree in physics or engineering, or a related subject.
- MSc in Medical Image Computing focusses more on the applications of computing in medical image analysis for therapy and diagnosis. The course is open to students with a medical or technical background and contains a strong computing element.
Both of our MSc degrees are one-year full-time courses, but each can also be taken as a two-year part-time course. The part-time option is particularly appropriate for students who are registered on the Institute of Physics & Engineering in Medicine's Grade A Training Scheme. Both MSc degrees include practical laboratory-based sessions and a significant research project, based in one of our research groups or within a hospital department. For more information about our MSc degrees, please see our FAQ or contact us.
In 2011 we launched a new distance-learning MSc degree, which is equivalent to our MSc in Physics and Engineering in Medicine. The fee is approximately £15,000 (roughly £5000 less than our full-time fee for overseas students). To receive further announcements about our distance learning degrees, please email us.
2012/13 Faculty of Engineering Sciences Excellence Scholarships
To help gifted engineering students deal with this year's financial turbulence, UCL Engineering is offering a select number of scholarships worth £ 2000 to those with a record of excellent academic achievement. These will be awarded to UK & EU Master's candidates across all nine departments within the faculty, at the discretion of the Vice-Dean (Education). All applications received before July 2012 will be considered for a Scholarship, and decisions will be made based on pure merit.
Studying at UCL
London is one of the world's greatest cities: exciting, vibrant, and lots to offer, both in terms of living here, and for studying here. It is also the home of the 2012 Olympic Games. UCL provides a considerable amount of information, some of it specifically for international students.
How to apply
Please complete and submit an application form along with 2 references.
MSc programmes start at the end of September and application forms should be submitted ideally before the end of July. In some circumstances applications arriving after that date can still be considered.
