STFC UK Nuclear Physics Graduate School

The STFC NP Graduate School is aimed at UK-based experimental nuclear physics PhD students at any stage of their training. The School comprises a mix of residential and online courses that aim to give researcher students a grounding in experimental and theoretical nuclear physics and complementary skills. The provision is free for STFC-funded Nuclear PhD students but places may be open to other non-STFC funded PhD researchers for a nominal fee.
