About Us

Whether you are a first-year doctoral student or you are an experienced post-doctoral researcher, there are always new academic and professional skills to learn and develop. This is the place to come to search for courses, events and workshops. This site is intended to provide a curated list of courses, resources and other training opportunities relevant to doctoral students and researchers working across the Social Sciences.

We are supported by a number of people and teams working across the Division.
