Researcher Development Programme


"I can manage information effectively and have general IT skills."

As researchers, we work with information every day. It is crucial that you manage your literature, data and references properly. You must also have developed general IT skills, such as the ability to produce a document, create a presentation, or manage your emails, which are essential not only for your research but also beyond.

You can develop these skills through courses run by the University Library, the Research Data Management Centre, and the University Information Services. Please see the sections of the RD Hub related to this area for more detail: in particular 'Data and Reference Management', 'Other Software and IT Skills', and 'Software for Writing and Graphics'.
