Training programmes and opportunities
The Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences provides two training programmes to enhance the research and career development of the postgraduate research students who are registered for a higher degree by research within the faculty. The training programmes are run in conjunction with the Graduate School and provide a broad and comprehensive range of research training courses, in line with the requirements set out by the UK Research Councils.
Each School has its own requirement for completion of training. Please consult with your supervisor whether you are required to complete the training programmes and discuss which courses would be most suitable for your training needs.
