Researcher Development Programme

Researcher Development is helping you get the best out of Warwick from your time here - and most importantly getting the best from yourself.

"The prime gain from doing a PhD is little to do with the subject. It is the life skills; surviving countless struggles, persisting through difficult times, becoming a resourceful problem solver and independent thinker; and knowing when to ask for help. Invaluable for any future role!!"

Term 2 (2022) programme available here. Book online via SkillsForge.

Whether it is getting the tools to do the job, understanding concepts of research practice, getting yourself organised, keeping yourself and life on track; or taking time to listen and understand other people's research, the Researcher Development Programme is designed by you, for you. We use a Coaching Development model which puts you in charge of your own learning, supports your creativity and curiosity and works to your strengths and needs

    Most of our online sessions are 60-90 minutes and are coaching and development focussed where we may share knowledge and help you find the answers for yourselves.

    Importantly, the delivery team are all active researchers, lecturers, and skilled facilitators.

    We do not run webinars or seminars. The sessions are interactive and you are fully in charge of your own learning and development.

    On the RDO Teams site, you can access workshops, discussions, events, materials and resources, and also other information recommended by your PGR colleagues to support you whilst at Warwick.
