University providers for 2019

These are the current university providers for the STP. When there is more than one university provider for a specialism, the final decision as to who will be the chosen provider to deliver the academic element will be at the discretion of the Lead Commissioner and their decision will be final.

Please note that these details could change and therefore we recommend that you confirm these details directly with the respective university by the summer of 2019. University allocations will not be made until the offer process is completed.

The 180 credit MSc courses are offered over a 3 year period.

Year 1 starts with an introductory month of teaching at Liverpool which includes a Saturday day visit to Clatterbridge Cancer Centre to take measurements on a LINAC.

The remaining year 1 modules are taught in 1 week blocks at Liverpool and are common to all specialisms.

In year 2 the students select their specialism after discussion with their training centres. The modules are taught in 1 week blocks.

Each module is worth 10 credits.

Most year 1 and year 2 are assessed via assignments and exams held in Liverpool during a two week block in May/June.

In year 3 the students complete a 60 credit project at their training centres. The student must submit a dissertation and present their work in a one day workshop at Liverpool.
