Faculty Training Programme

Faculty Research Training

We attach great importance to postgraduate training and deliver this through the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences Research Training Programme.

All PhD and MPhil students take part in modules from the Faculty Research Training Programme.

We also offer a range of training courses within the School. All postgraduate students enter into the School's research culture and activities such as:

  • internal and external seminars
  • lectures
  • workshops
  • conferences

There are also opportunities to develop your teaching skills.

You will have space to reflect on your skills and highlight areas where extra training may be needed. Recording training allows you to complete your programme with a thesis to be proud of. The skills you develop are also transferable to a wide range of future careers.
