Researcher Development


It can be overwhelming to know where to start when you're a new postgraduate student. We suggest getting started with the set of courses below, to make sure you have a solid foundation and help you develop an idea of where you need focus your energy next.

Time Management Toolkit

Presentation Skills Toolkit

AHSS: Your First-Year Assessment

STEM: Writing your First-Year Report

Once you've completed the courses above, check out our Courses and Resources to see where to head next, based on your reflections from the Skills Analysis Survey. Remember that you can always look for One-to-One Support from your discipline's Researcher Developer if you're unsure about any aspect of your professional development.

Finally, don't forget to look out for your fortnightly invitation to Researcher Café - your opportunity to step away from the research and meet other researchers in a relaxed (remote) atmosphere.
