Details of all SUPA courses can be found in the SUPA handbook.
We ask that all PhD students undertake a minimum of 40 hours of assessed physics studies and 20 hours of core skills training during the first two years of their PhD. Please note that this is a minimum requirement and some themes and universities will require their students to do more. Additional information about these requirements can be found in SUPA handbook or from your local Graduate School.
- between 8th September 2017 and 9th October 2017 for semester one courses
- between 6th November 2017 and 8th January 2018 for semester two courses
Please note that the term ‘credits’ is only used in SUPA handbook to refer to ‘SUPA Hours Equivalent Credits’ (the number of face to face hours per course that students are credited with towards their minimum coursework requirements). This term does not refer to ECTS or any other crediting system.
