The month ahead

Within this item we will highlight events and intiatives coming up in the month ahead

Researcher Development Programme

We’ve had a really busy few months planning our programme for the year, and have been so pleased to see many of you at our regular workshops. We've been organising dates for Spring, and you can now book onto workshops up to March 2015.

We'll be running our first webinar in November, allowing you to participate in our training without having to be on campus. So long as you have a computer and internet connection, you will be able to learn from our presenter, see their slides, and participate in the online Q&A. This is our first one, so fingers crossed all goes to plan, but please bear with us if our IT plays up on the day as we're still learning!

Don’t forget to also have a look at our online resources through Researcher Development Online
