In the Education programme of University of Worcester students are allocated a pathway appropriate to their research experience and background.
Where could it take you?
All research students must engage with the Researcher Development Programme (RDP), a core curriculum of training and development which provides them with the general and subject-specific knowledge, skills and behaviours to support them in the completion of their research degree. At the beginning of an MPhil/PhD degree, you will be allocated to one of two pathways depending on your experience and knowledge as a researcher. This will determine which elements of the programme are core and which are optional. At the beginning of the programme you will be required to complete a Training Needs Analysis (TNA) in conjunction with your Director of Studies. This identifies the training that you will need to undertake, in addition to the mandatory elements of RDP, in order to complete the programme and to become an effective researcher. This TNA is revisited at the beginning of each subsequent academic year. All students are offered a wide range of optional training workshops throughout the programme focused around the following themes:
- Developing and Managing Your Research
- Dissemination, Impact, Engagement
- Completing Your Research Degree
- Research Methodology Master classes
- Data Analysis
- Research Funding
- Wellbeing and Personal Effectiveness
- Careers and Employability
- Enterprise and Entrepreneurship
