The current M.Sc. thesis program is structured such that, in addition to the basics of medical physics, the students get some practical knowledge through the mandatory laboratory work in radiation oncology, radiology, and nuclear medicine.

About

The students are also given some research training through their thesis work on a medical physics topic. Thus, the program gives students the basic theoretical and practical knowledge of medical physics required to enable them to either enter the job market in clinical physics at an M.Sc. level or continue their studies toward a Ph.D. degree in medical physics.

The continuation toward a Ph.D. is recommended only to students who excel during their M.Sc. studies in medical physics.

English Language Requirements

You only need to take one of these language tests:

  • Minimum required score: 6.5

    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

    Take IELTS test
  • Minimum required score: 567

    The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).

  • Minimum required score: 86

    The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).
