Course content

The COMPASS CDT is a four-year programme. In year one, you are required to complete six mandatory taught Level M units. These are delivered through lectures, workshops, laboratories and guided self-study, and include peer-supported learning and group work.

COMPASS involves a specially designed taught first year that is delivered through lectures, workshops, laboratories and guided self-study, and includes peer-supported learning and group work. PhD projects and supervisors are matched to students during the first nine months and proposals are developed through the summer of the first year, before full-time research starts in October of your second year.
