A new concept in postgraduate-level training for the nuclear sector has been developed by a strong consortium of UK universities and HE institutions. The breadth and format of the training is designed to meet the UK's projected nuclear skills requirements in current and future reactor operations, decommissioning and clean-up.
The Nuclear Technology Education Consortium (NTEC) comprises the Universities of Birmingham, Central Lancashire, City University London, Defence Academy - College of Management and Technology, Imperial College London, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, and Sheffield. Together, these institutions represent more than 90% of the nuclear postgraduate teaching expertise residing in the UK's universities and research institutes.
NTEC therefore provides a one-stop shop for a range of postgraduate training in Nuclear Science and Technology which is unparalleled in the UK. The structure and content of the programme, which leads to qualifications up to MSc in Nuclear Science and Technology, was established following extensive consultations with the UK nuclear sector, including industry, regulators, MoD, NDA, Government Departments and the Cogent Sector Skills Council.
Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES)
The School of Physics and Astronomy is proud that 96% of students on the MSc in Nuclear Science and Technology are satisfied overall with the course.
Launched in 2009, the HEA's annual Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) is the only sector-wide survey to gain insight from taught postgraduate students about their learning and teaching experience.
The survey focuses on students’ experiences regarding:
- teaching and learning
- assessment and feedback
- organisation and management
- resources and services
- skills development
