Brunel Graduate School

Brunel Graduate School coordinates a University-wide programme of researcher development activities. These activities have been designed to support your personal and professional development as a researcher (doctoral and postdoctoral researchers). For doctoral researchers, activities are aligned with both the Brunel 3D Researcher Development Tool © and the national Researcher Development Framework (RDF - Vitae, 2010). The latter sets out the knowledge, behaviours and attributes of effective researchers appropriate to a wide range of careers.

Opportunities include interactive workshops, seminars, networking events, presentations – delivered online or face-to-face – by internal and external experts, professionals and academics. The majority are delivered across disciplines to encourage the development of interdisciplinary understanding, skills and networks.

Provision will identify the stage of research for which the activity is most appropriate – early, mid or late stage doctoral study, or post-doctoral research.

Registering for a researcher development activity

Events have a limited number of places which are generally available on a first come, first served basis. However, workshops are often repeated so that, where a workshop is full, you can add your name to a waiting list to informed as soon as an additional date becomes available.

Where workshop dates are listed you can register immediately by following the instructions. Please ensure the workshop is appropriate for you before registering by checking the workshop details. If no date is scheduled, or if the date is not suitable for you, you can add your name to the waiting list to be notified when new dates become available.

If you cannot attend, please cancel your registration at least 48 hours in advance by visiting or emailing Cancellations via telephone and emails to individual staff members will not be valid.

In addition, you can access a range of online courses and resources (available via BlackBoard Learn > Communities>Graduate School).
