Discover where a undergraduate degree in Medical Physics could take you!
Medical physicists apply fundamental physical principles to improve human health. We are behind many of the lifesaving procedures and imaging carried out by modern medics, informing diagnosis, treatment, and the maintenance of health.
With a research focus on medical imaging, physiological monitoring and the development of implanted devices, our field offers the excitement of discovery and the reward of contributing to human well-being. From the simple finger pulse oximeter to the intricate magnetic resonance imaging scanner or complex linear accelerator for radiotherapy. None of these devices would have been developed without medical physics.

Pippa, MSci Graduate class of 2022
"I have so many fond memories of the last four years of my studies. I met so many inspirational people at UCL, both students and staff, and I really grew as a person as a result of studying in the Medical Physics Department. I am sad to see my studies come to an end, but I’ll always have the memories and know that I can count on the friends I’ve met along the way."
Chat to our students
Deciding where to study is a big step and we understand the importance of hearing from current students at your shortlisted universities. You can chat directly to any of our Student Ambassadors on Unibuddy about their experience studying at UCL!
UCL is pleased to offer guided and self-guided tours of the campus by current UCL students. The tours are primarily for prospective students and their family members and normally last approximately an hour and a half. The dates of upcoming tours are available at guided tours website.
If you are unable to visit in person, you can take a virtual tour of UCL instead. You'll be able to look inside lecture theatres, laboratories, the Library, Fitness Centre, the Bloomsbury Theatre and the Students' Union. Virtual tours of our Student Houses and Halls of Residence are also available. A list of Student Houses and Halls of Residence detailing prices and locations can be found on the UCL accommodation webpage.
UCL Open Day
The UCL Open day is a chance to see the whole college, attend talks by the admissions tutors and come into the department for a tour and some hands on activities in our laboratory. Full details are available on the UCL Open Day website.
UCAS Offer Holder Visit Days
Successful applicants will be invited to attend a UCAS Offer Holder Visit Day, where you will meet members of staff and current students and will be taken on a tour of the department and the campus. You can view pictures from our 2022 UG Offer Holder Day here!
