Introduction and Regulations
The SPS Research Students' Handbook provides you with essential general academic and support information to help you throughout the academic year.
The handbooks are correct at the time of writing and any changes throughout the academic year will be communicated via email and the Graduate School website. The handbooks should be read in conjunction with:
- The Programme Handbook for your specific PhD or MSc by research
- The Code of Practice for Supervisors and Research Students (this gives you and your supervisor guidance on how to manage the PhD and what is expected of you both)
- The University of Edinburgh Degree Regulations and Programmes of Study
- The Postgraduate Assessment Regulations for Research Students (including guidelines for examination of research degrees)
