Details of all SUPA courses can be found in the (2019/20) SUPA course catalogue and handbook.
We ask that all PhD students undertake a minimum of 40 hours of advanced specialist physics studies and 20 hours of professional development 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 or have mandatory courses. Additional information about these requirements can be found in SUPA handbook or from your local Graduate School.
Please note that the term ‘credits’ is only used in SUPA course catalogue and 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.
