The Graduate School has been formed to support our academic Faculties with the recruitment, student experience and skills development of all our postgraduate research students.
A key function of the Graduate School is to deliver personal and professional skills training to all of our researchers. Research students enjoy access to the Researcher Development Programme an excellent series of events and workshops which are all mapped against the VITAE Research Development Framework (RDF). Through this training, interaction between researchers of different academic disciplines is encouraged to create and foster a vibrant and supportive research community.
The Graduate School space is a dedicated area on the fourth floor of the Waterfront Building and is used by PGR students as a social and learning space, staffed at certain periods during the week by Graduate School staff and used as a space to deliver some of the Graduate School seminars and workshops.
