Training Courses

The DTC offers a range of training delivered by each of the White Rose Universities, some are training Pathway specific and others of interest to all PhD students.

Formal and informal training courses, seminars, summer schools and workshops sit alongside the support of academic supervisors, departments and faculties, and the provision of opportunities beyond the University, to create a research environment in which postgraduates can thrive.

The expectation is that via each Training Pathway the students are able to access research training, without incurring an additional charge, at any of the White Rose Universities (subject to availability, prior permission of the tutor and prerequisite qualifications).

Details of the latest training on offer is shown below.

Members of the DTC can also access professional development opportunities provided at their home institution by clicking on the name of their university:
