Research Training Programme (RTP)
Registration for the Michaelmas Term 2017 Programme will open in October 2017, and must be done on the Michaelmas Term Registration Form. Registration for Lent/Summer Term modules will open later in the academic year, and must be done on the appropriate form for the term in question.
The Research Training Programme (RTP) consists of modules and short courses on research methods, theories and philosophies of the social sciences and humanities, thesis writing and other generic skills relevant to PhD study. The RTP is designed to complement more specialised subject or discipline-based training modules offered by departments.
The RTP offers:
- On-site modules and short courses
- Distance learning modules (please note that these are provided for part-time and away students in the first instance, and they will be given precedence on these modules)
The RTP includes:
- Modules for PhD students in the early stages of their studies, for example on research design and research methods
- More advanced modules and short courses that are intended for more experienced research students already well into their research project
All our teaching is designed to help you considerably with aspects of your research, from design, to data collection and analysis, to writing up and successfully defending your thesis.
