COVID-19 effect on WRDTP Training

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and our commitment to your safety the WRDTP will continue to operate a policy of providing online training only. We hope to resume face-to-face training in some capacity during the 2021/22 academic year and are working on a way to ensure this poses a low risk to the health of students and speakers. In the meantime please note that where possible training sessions delivered in 2020/2021 have been recorded and added to the VIRE for remote learning. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at training@wrdtp.ac.uk

We offer a range of research methods and other training which is delivered by each of our partner Universities.  The training may be linked to one of our 7 interdisciplinary themed Pathways or of interest to all students.

Training is offered in four key areas:

  • Discipline-based training: this provides a high-level understanding of academic debates in a specific field
  • Professional skills for research leadership: this is training in how academic work is funded, published and translated into practical use beyond the university
  • Advanced research methods training: this provides exposure to cutting-edge methods that support students’ own projects and their future research ambitions
  • Interdisciplinary Pathway training: this Pathway training is key to the ethos of the WRDTP.  It enables students to articulate how their PhDs contribute to wider societal challenges through work within one of the seven interdisciplinary thematic Pathways
