As for all postgraduate research (PGR) students, the first source of research support is the academic supervisor/s of whom there will be at least two and possibly more. In addition to academic supervisors and their teams, research support is provided through different technology platforms driven by highly skilled research technicians across the school.
Within the school, postgraduate advisors and administrative staff are available to assist further. PGR students attend school and group seminars presented by external and internal speakers, and will be able to develop their own communication and presentation skills associated with local, national and international meetings.
The Postgraduate Research Committee actively supports training and development of students and ensure they develop into adept, well rounded and independent researchers in Clinical nutrition.
A number of University support services exist to assist you during your time at Nottingham and beyond. The Postgraduate Students' Association (PGSA) is a particularly important source of support.
The Graduate School supports all postgraduates and early career researchers at the University of Nottingham.
We offer dedicated facilities, resources and development opportunities including training courses, seminars, paid placements, travel and mobility awards and public engagement opportunities. Researchers in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences also have access to a dedicated training programme delivered by academics and researchers from the faculty or by researcher development professionals from the Graduate School and other professional services. It provides a broad and comprehensive range of research training courses, in line with the requirements set out by the UK Research Councils.
