Researcher development resources to help you to do your research, communicate your findings and complete your doctorate on time

Supporting your development

During your doctorate you will develop a range of skills, competencies and knowledge. These will be invaluable to you in completing your doctorate on time and in your future chosen career.

To complement your development we offer a range of free online resources and workshops, tailored for doctoral students.

To help you manage your professional development we have aligned these to the four Domains of the Researcher Development Framework.

All of our workshops are offered on a first come - first served basis. If you try and book a place on a workshop which is full you will be automatically allocated a place on a waiting list. If a place subsequently becomes available all students on the waiting list will be notified, with the place filled on a first come first served basis.
