I aspire to work in the nuclear industry, hopefully one day I will have the honour of working on a fusion reactor.

I'm a year 13 students doing 5 A levels, predicted ABBBB in Biology, Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Spanish, in order and it's getting very close to that time where my future depends on my choices in the coming months.

As I was looking at engineering courses, particularly nuclear engineering, I found out that it is a master's degree course. And I wanted to know if somehow, someway I could get into these courses, with B.Sc degree in Physics and Nuclear technology, which is only taught at Nottingham Trent University and West Scotland University, or any nuclear-engineering course.
Also, are there any related courses to Physics and Nuclear Technology, maybe the wording is only unique to NTU and WSU. And that the exact course is called something else in other unis, perhaps harder to get into unis.

You can do a masters in nuclear engineering off the back of a regular physics degree. However, there are some MEng courses in nuclear engineering, if you want to specialise from the beginning. (In case you weren't aware, MEng is a 4 year course incorporating undergrad and masters in one degree).

Liverpool is well worth looking at for specialism and grades for nuclear physics
Surrey also as a MEng
