All XPS students are required to obtain one credit for the Laboratory Course of Advanced Optical Science I or II by the end of their Master's course. In addition, they must obtain six credits for courses from the Lectures on Advanced Photon Science by the end of their first Doctoral year (at least two credits must be for courses given by a department other than their own and common courses of the Graduate School of Science).
Meetings with a Secondary Supervisor
Each XPS student is assigned a secondary supervisor in addition to their main supervisor. All XPS students are required to meet and report their academic progress to their secondary supervisor once every six months. Submit the Academic Progress Report signed by their secondary supervisor to the WINGS Desk, Academic Affairs Office of the Graduate School of Science.
See here for details of faculty members who can take on the role of secondary supervisor.
