The Researcher Development Programme (RDP) supports postgraduate researchers in developing their transferable skills, helping them to be more effective researchers now and more employable in the future. We provide training and development opportunities including a comprehensive programme of face-to-face training workshops, online resources, and supporting information. In addition, we offer flexible one-to-one support in all areas that we cover.
Your relationship with your supervisors is crucial. It is important that you foster a good relationship with them if you are going to have a positive experience of the doctorate.
