Training & Events

COVID-19 advice for WRDTP PhD Students:

Due to the current advice from Public Health England and the UK Government the WRDTP has decided to postpone all face-to-face training events over the next few weeks. Where possible all planned training will either be rearranged to a date later in the semester or in the new teaching year. In some cases we may be able to offer this training session online and information regarding this will be communicated to students as and when it becomes available. If you are concerned or unsure if a training session is to be delivered please contact us at training@wrdtp.ac.uk. The training pages will be updated regularly with developing information do please keep checking back.

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
