The University of St Andrews in Scotland offers a fully funded PhD program in Physics. All incoming students receive training at the SUPA grad school to acquire a solid foundational base before jumping into the thesis. After completing these courses students select a project in photonics, condensed matter or astrophysics to focus on. Students will work closely with an advisor for the remaining years of the PhD as they conduct the independent research necessary to complete their thesis. Studentships are available to national and international students and support the PhD student throughout their complete course of study.
