All training meets the requirements of the Joint Statement of the Research Councils' Skills Training Requirements for Research Students, as informed by the Roberts' Report.

You will also have access to an online Research Training Portfolio to allow you to recognise proficiencies and skills gained and developed through your postgraduate training and to identify training needs.
