Postgraduate Research Development
The postgraduate development programme is based on the requirements of both the Postgraduate Researcher Development Statement and Researcher Development Framework. These have been created by Vitae, an organisation that exists to support the professional and personal development of doctoral researchers and research staff in higher education institutions and research institutes. They have been endorsed by the QAA and Research Councils UK.
The programme offers students a suite of training courses, 1-2-1 support and skills development opportunities and is coordinated by the Training and Development and Employment and Enterprise Teams based in The Graduate School. The Postgraduate Development Programme exists to support research students in the development of research skills and to enhance their employability through career and personal development.
The Postgraduate Development Programme aims to support Postgraduate Research Students in developing a range of professional skills to successfully complete their research and increase their employability.
