POSTGRADUATE COURSES

We list here courses relevant to PhD-level research in the Theory and Simulation of Materials, with brief information about the aims of the course, contact details of the course organiser, time when the course is given, and a note about whether the course is open to students at all London Colleges.

Please note that although TYC students from other colleges may be welcome to attend courses, students from external colleges will not be eligible to take the course exams and their coursework will not be able to be marked.
