Researcher development

The University has a coronavirus advice page for doctoral researchers and supervisors, which will be updated regularly. 

In addition, the Student Hub has specific advice for international PhD students (scroll down to Research Students section) and guidelines have been issued for anyone approaching a Distant (Online) Viva.


The annual Festival of Doctoral Research is taking place 15th - 19th June.

Check out the events and book your place on the Festival homepage.

Our Researcher Development Programme provides year-round training and development opportunities to help you successfully complete your doctorate, and prepare for your future.

97% of our workshop participants would recommend our programme to other researchers.
