In addition to your research project, as a Postgraduate Researcher, you will have access to a range of training and development activities which begins with a shared induction period followed by a structured series of events including conferences, shared residential training modules, networking and participation in RCNDE events. The multi-university operation means that in addition to the CDT cohort experience, the REs benefit from a parallel cohort experience in their own universities plus networking with a large number of researchers in the RCNDE community. This is in contrast to a traditional PhD where you would train in specific research-based skills as an individual or as part of a small research group.
