Researcher Development

 

"I know a foreign or programming language to an appropriate level to help me complete my research and develop my career."

Foreign languages are often essential to completing your research (for reading materials, field trips or internships, for example), but they can also be vital to expanding your future career opportunities.

Knowing one or more programming languages can likewise open many doors, both in undertaking your research and in your future career. For those in the sciences, being able to use at least one programming language is essential.

You can develop these skills through courses run by the Language Centre, as well as other forms of language support they offer. For coding languages, you can develop these skills through courses run by the University Information Services and the Bioinformatics Training Facility.
