What is the PGCTSS?
The Postgraduate Certificate in Transferable Skills in Science (PGCTSS) is an accredited qualification designed to enable you:
- to be a successful doctoral researcher undertaking world leading research
- to improve your research effectiveness
- to maximize your talents in your future career
- to understand what you already know and how to use those skills to maximum effect.
Who is it for?
There are two separate courses within the PGCTSS, for PhD students and post doctoral researchers.
Applications are also welcome for the certificate or individual modules from other interested parties (fees may apply).
We currently have over 350 students working to achieve this certificate.
What do people say?
Everything was superb ... great learning environment indeed
Everything was superb, I especially liked the practical exercise of assessment centre tasks, body language session and talks by former PhD students on different career choices.
All facilitators were very friendly and open to discussions, great learning environment indeed

Challenge yourself in many ways
There were plenty of activities - it was hard work but we were pushed to challenge ourselves in many different ways and maybe discover abilities we didn't think we had

Definitely the best training I have yet done (and I've done a lot...), perfectly pitched, challenging, engaging, fun and I learnt a lot
