Doctoral Academy Training Programme

Our training programme provides foundation and intermediate level training at key stages of your postgraduate research degree to ensure timely completion, generic skills development and increased future employability.

The Doctoral Academy Training Programme provides training in nine key areas. To find out more about the support available and to book on to a workshop, please visit the links below or visit the University's training catalogue.


All researchers at the University must complete both the University's research integrity training and the understanding export controls training.

The online Research Integrity Training will help you to understand your professional responsibilities as a researcher and will also provide practical advice on dealing with complex issues that can arise while planning, conducting and reporting your research.

The online Understanding Export Controls Training will ensure that you are aware of your export control obligations as a researcher at the University and will also introduce you to the University's Export Control Policy.
