Graduate School Courses Information

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.

**Enrolment for 2019/20 Semester 1 is now open.
Enrolment for Semester 2 will open at the start of December**.
