Researcher Development

'The programme itself was excellent. Of the four sessions that I attended, I would have rated all as very useful and three as excellent. I met and chatted to students from a dozen different disciplines and as many nationalities. This was not only enjoyable but good to share tips and problems.'

Andrew Pickering, PhD Student Department of Theology and Religion

Our Researcher Development Team works with the postgraduate research community, the library and careers service, and Departments across the University to provide research students with a comprehensive development programme that delivers a solid foundation for their doctoral studies and their future careers beyond the completion of their PhD.

The Researcher Development Team also works with the University’s Doctoral Training Centres, Centres for Doctoral Training and Doctoral Training Partnerships to provide bespoke development events, one-to-one sessions and writing retreats for students.
