Overview

Nuclear fuel reprocessing and nuclear decommissioning. Sellafield offers degree apprenticeships in nuclear engineering and nuclear science (focused on analysis). You could not train anywhere better than Sellafield if you want a career in nuclear (steady prospects, and some hope of a revival with new technologies on the horizon). Two caveats: the degrees are only a BEng, so you need to find out how you get the MEng you need for professional membership, and there's no promise of a job at the end.
