Support and development

We enrol all our postgraduate students in our Faculty Postgraduate Research Development Programme. The University Research Student Support Team will also support you during your studies. Together, we can provide structured support for your learning and development.

Our development programme will start by mapping your current skills against our Researcher Development Framework. This will form a Training Needs Analysis and help to create your Personal Development Plan. You and your supervisor will use this as a guide to focus on areas of personal growth.
