Postgraduate Research Training Sessions
We run a full training programme throughout the year to help students negotiate the different phases of study and the varying challenges each phase presents. The sessions are designed for students undertaking research degrees (MPhil, PhD, or Professional Doctorates) but are open to students who are planning to embark on a research degree post-graduation. The sessions are organised by the Graduate School and the content will be delivered by experienced PhD supervisors, Professional Services staff and external speakers.
