Researcher Training and Development

The University is fully committed to the Researcher Development Concordat, which outlines the responsibilities of higher education institutions, funders, research leaders and managers, and individuals, in facilitating their career development.

The Concordat further sets out a clear expectation for researchers to be given the time and encouragement by their institutions to undertake a minimum of 10 days professional development pro rata per year.

A rich and comprehensive skills development programme is available to research staff and postgraduate researchers, with bespoke local support and guidance offered by mentors, supervisors, and managers.
