But University isn't just about studying. Swansea offers a great student experience in a beautiful environment. Here are more lifestyle reasons why you should choose Swansea
The University is the Welsh Government's preferred provider for Healthcare Science (Radiotherapy) professional pre-registration education in south west Wales.
Students on the Radiotherapy Physics Degree spend half their time at university and half on placements, preparing for the world of work. These placements are organised by the College. Students do not need to be employed by the hospital department or organise their own placements.
Medical Physics students have multiple opportunities to use the College of Human and Health Sciences' state-of-the-art facilities. Our clinical practice suite allows students of Radiotherapy Physics to learn practical skills before using them in a real life situation.
Students are advised to visit a hospital medical physics department to familiarise themselves with the role and daily activities of medical physics technologists before applying.
