About

Established in 1972, the MSc in Radiation and Environmental Protection at the University of Surrey is one of the UK’s longest-running courses in the field of nuclear science and its applications.

Overview

Why choose this course

Nuclear science has a wealth of applications, but with its use comes a high level of environmental responsibility.

The MSc in Radiation and Environmental Protection at the University of Surrey is taught by a combination of inspirational nuclear physics academics and pioneering experts from the UK’s radiological protection and nuclear industries.

What you will study

This course will give you a thorough understanding of the radiation and environmental protection aspects of nuclear physics.

This includes in-depth knowledge of radiation protection, showing you how the technical and organisational procedures of the discipline may be applied to the broader concept of environmental protection.
