Faculty Research Development Programmes

Develop career-related skills and make your research more effective.

Achieve more with personal and professional training

Each faculty offers a researcher development programme for its postgraduate research students. We have designed your programme to help you:

  • perform better as a researcher
  • boost your career prospects
  • broaden your impact

Build your transferable skills and confidence

Your doctorate can open up a world of opportunities. Yet there’s more to preparing for future careers than building your researcher profile and technical skills.

That’s where the researcher development programme comes in. Through workshops and activities, it will build your transferable skills and increase your confidence.

As a result, you'll be better able to communicate your value to potential employers and land exciting opportunities.

What will I learn?

The exact content of your programme will vary, depending on your faculty and your individual needs. It’s likely to include:

  • techniques for effective research
  • methods for better collaborative working
  • essential professional standards and requirements

Your research project, experience and career aspirations will influence what you need from the programme.

That’s why your programme is flexible. You can adapt it to meet your changing needs as you progress through your doctorate.

As a result, you'll be better able to communicate your value to potential employers and land exciting opportunities.
