Handbook and Adviser of Studies

The Physics Undergraduate Handbook 2021-2022 should be read in conjunction with StrathLife. There you will find information about Registration, Support Services, studying at Strathclyde and living in Glasgow. 

The Regulations given in the Handbook were correct at the time of publishing, but you can also view up-to-date regulations.

MSc students should read the Physics Postgraduate Taught Handbook 2021-2022.

All students should also familiarise themselves with two important pages on Myplace where up-to-date information can be found. The first is the Physics Personal Development page, which gives advice and links to a wide range of University and Departmental information. The second is the Physics Covid-19 Info page. This contains the latest updates on changes that have had to be made due to the ongoing Covid pandemic. So, please start having a look at these pages and familiarise yourself with them as you will be referring to them throughout your time at Strathclyde Physics.
