Training for Researchers
Our doctoral researchers are offered a comprehensive training package.  Within the first few weeks of registration for the research degree, candidates must undertake a training needs analysis and agree a formal training plan with their supervision team.  The plan is revisited and revised at the start of each year of registration that follows.  This can be learning through taught courses to fill any gaps in knowledge; generic skills training courses run by the University or Faculty; specific research skills training which may be provided here at Leeds or elsewhere; seminars and conferences which may be run here at Leeds, elsewhere in the UK, or overseas.
