Training and Resources


There are a number of training opportunities and resources available for MRes/PhD students. We have listed these below, and encourage you to read more and make use of them during the course of your study at our Department. As additional training opportunities become available, we will share them on this page.


Training opportunities for postgraduate research students are available through SkillsForge, (which can be found on the Current Student page for MRes/PhD students). SkillsForge is a newly designed platform available from September 2017, which enables researchers to find and book onto skills training available at the University through the Research Student Skills Programme or through the IT services.
