Aberystwyth Researcher

The Aberystwyth Researcher programme is focused on the needs of early career researchers - including postgraduate research students and research-only staff. It offers a wide range of short training courses and other activities designed to help researchers develop the skills required to successfully complete their research degree and also to improve their future employability, whether within academia or outside it. The courses on offer are grouped according to skills identified in the Researcher Development Framework. The courses are free to all Aberystwyth research students regardless of their source of funding.
