You should meet with your Academic Advisor in Welcome Week to confirm your selection of optional courses.
Taught courses must consist of 120 credits, at least 90 credits of which must be at SCQF Level 11 and at most 30 credits at SCQF Level 10. Of these, there must be:
30 credits Compulsory Courses;
At least 50 credits of Standard Courses;
Up to 40 credits chosen freely from the lists below.
In addition to taught courses there is a 60-credit Dissertation.
Every effort is made when setting the timetable to take into account commonly chosen options, however students should consult the timetable when making their choices: http://www.ph.ed.ac.uk/timetables. Note also that not all optional courses run every academic year.
