At the Doctoral College we run a Researcher Development Programme which offers a wide range of courses and sessions to help you develop and broaden your research and transferable skills, whether you're a postgraduate research student or member of staff.
If you're a research student or research staff member at the University, the sessions we offer are free of charge. We encourage you to take these opportunities to develop and refine your skills, as well as connect with colleagues. Our programme is designed to support your research and your career choices.
The programme is supported by Research Councils UK, Vitae and employers of researchers. We recommend you attend up to ten days of development activities during each academic year. These activities can be from our Researcher Development Programme, subject specific training, external training, workshops and conferences. Our programme also includes brand new and revised sessions and repeats of our most popular development sessions, such as writing for research publication.
