- The School of Physics and Astronomy plays a leading role in the exploitation of data from the Large Hadron Collider, the world's largest particle accelerator at CERN.
- The School has close links with Sellafield Ltd. and the UK National Nuclear Laboratory in the area of nuclear fuel reprocessing and nuclear waste management.
- Members of the School of Physics and Astronomy set up Lynkeos Technology Ltd, for muon imaging of nuclear waste products.
- The School plays a world-leading role in the design and operation of the worldwide network of laser interferometers that have detected gravitational waves.
- The School is highly active in research and knowledge transfer projects with industry. Our Masters students have regular opportunities to engage with our industrial collaborators through informal visits, guest lectures and workshops.
- You will also benefit from our membership of the Scottish Universities Physics Alliance. The alliance brings together internationally leading physics research across Scotland to form the largest physics grouping in the UK.
- You will gain the theoretical, observational and computational skills necessary to analyse and solve advanced physics problems, providing you with an excellent foundation for a career of scientific leadership in academia or industry.
- You will develop transferable skills that will improve your career prospects, such as project management, team-working, advanced data analysis, problem-solving, critical evaluation of scientific literature, advanced laboratory and computing skills, and how to effectively communicate with different audiences.
- You will benefit from direct contact with our group of international experts who will teach you cutting-edge physics and supervise your projects.
- The School has an Athena Swan Silver Award, demonstrating the support for women and under-represented groups in scientific studies and careers, with the goal to improve the working environment for all.
- It is expected that this programme will be accredited by the Institute of Physics.

Ranking and student feedback
University of Glasgow evaluation:
The Masters in Nuclear and Environmental Physics aims to give students an understanding of the application of nuclear processes to energy generation, medical physics and environmental monitoring, at a level appropriate for a professional physicist. Students will be provided with the theoretical, experimental and computational skills necessary to analyse and solve a variety of advanced physics problems relevant to this range of important global industries. The programme will draw upon a wide range of advanced Masters-level lecture courses delivered within the School of Physics & Astronomy: in addition to undertaking core physics courses and courses that build key research skills, students will have the flexibility to tailor their choice of elective lecture courses and project work to a wide variety of specific research topics and their applications in the areas of nuclear physics, nuclear industry and environmental monitoring.WHY THIS PROGRAMME

About this university
Students travel from around the world to study at the university and its website has country-specific information available. The International Student Support Team is a dedicated advisory service to help students on a range of subjects including immigration, finding employment and dealing with financial matters. For those to whom English isnâ€™t a first language there is also English language courses available through the University Language Centre who also provide language support during the length of study. Student life is organised differently at Glasgow than many universities meaning there isnâ€™t a single student association but rather a number covering different areas. There are two separate studentâ€™s unions, dating from the times when one was for male students and the other for female, called the Glasgow University Union (GUU) and the Queen Margaret Union (QMU). There is also a Students Representative Council that is the legal body representing studentsâ€™ interests in the university and in wider terms. The two unions organise a number of social and cultural groups and events including providing facilities for debating, dining, socialising and meeting rooms. Sports are handled by the Glasgow University Sports Association (GUSA) that operates both sports clubs as well as fitness classes and drop in sessions.
