Researcher Development Assessment

A view of Woolf College

All new research students are required to undertake the Researcher Development Assessment, which involves considering their existing portfolio of skills as well as those that they wish to develop.

This skills audit includes a consideration of skills that students might need for their chosen career.

Identifying training and development needs at this early stage puts students in the strongest possible position to progress effectively with their research.
