Scottish Graduate School in Physics

The SUPA Graduate School provides postgraduate education and training to Scottish physicists. The SUPA program consists of over 50 courses, covering all seven of SUPA's research themes as well as professional development training courses.

Video Conference Facilities

A majority of SUPA courses are delivered via custom built video conference rooms in each of the eight SUPA institutions. The room availability can be seen in the timetable and the VC rooms are available for booking via the SUPA office when not in use for course.

The Graduate School hosts a number of events throughout the year including the New Students' Welcome Event, a Careers Workshop and the Annual Gathering.


SUPA students are asked to complete 40 hours of advanced specialist courses and 20 hours of professional development training during the first two years of their studies. Full details about these requirements are available in the course information section. Our courses and their associated materials are held in the online learning environment My.SUPA. Students should enrol in courses via My.SUPA at the beginning of each semester. Watch this short video on how to access My.SUPA (1min 48s, can watch with or without sound).
