Graduate Development: Supporting you every step of the way

Your PhD journey is about more than your thesis; developing personal and professional skills is an important part of being a postgraduate researcher. Researcher development training is designed to help you develop the skills needed to undertake focused research,  to write up and present you work but also support with you with things like developing your research career, exploring your options outside of academia.
