Training within the Postgraduate Researcher Development Programme is primarily designed to develop knowledge and skill in relation to areas identified as important to Postgraduate Researcher Development within Queen’s University. A programme of skills training is provided by the training team, based at the International and Postgraduate Centre. The individual courses vary in length from a quarter day to 2 days. They are led by academic and academic–related staff within Queen’s and also by external providers who are chosen based on their specialist experience of particular content areas and the University Sector.
Some Schools also develop more subject-specific training courses for research students, details of which can be gained by contacting your School.
Students can also attend training courses held by other Universities and external bodies. Vitae deliver a range of courses for postgraduate research students, most of which are provided at no cost.
