Health Sciences

A broad range of research-based and transferable skills that will assist your professional and career development, whether you plan to pursue a career inside or outside of academia, can be developed by attending the courses provided within the Graduate School's Researcher Development Programme or the M&HS Faculty-specific training programme. These courses are delivered by academics and researchers from within the Faculty as well as researcher development professionals from the Graduate School, Professional Development and Information Services.

Students in the School of Health Sciences should discuss their training and development needs with their supervisory team and identify relevant training courses to attend (these may be from the Faculty Training Programme, the Graduate School's Researcher Development Programme or any other relevant training course).

It is highly recommended that all first year (or part time equivalent) postgraduates registered for a doctoral degree in the School of Health Sciences attend and present at the annual Faculty Postgraduate Research Forum.

To attend a training course you will need to self-enrol using the on-line registration system.  Click on the relevant training programme below to access a listing of the available course, course descriptions and links to the sessions' on-line registration page.

All the information needed on how to book your training courses and course descriptions will be available on these web pages.
