The University provides general research-skills training, and development events designed to complement the subject-specific and project-related training provided by academic units and disciplines. These cover topics such as carrying out a literature review and preparing for your viva.
Our research-career development programme combines training aimed at researchers early on in their careers, with targeted training for research students. In fact, the distinction between these groups is often blurred. Thus, our training provision is wide ranging and offers considerable benefit to the student experience.
Our researcher development programme is open to all full and part-time research students, and combines targeted training for those in the first half of their PhDs, with events aimed at later-stage PhD students and early-career researchers. Thus, our training provision is wide-ranging and adds considerable value to the student experience.
Our training aligns with the Vitae Researcher Development Framework. Details can be found on their website.
