The Skills Analysis Survey is the perfect way to kick-start your development as a professional researcher.

This online course introduces you to the CamRDF and then asks you to complete a short self-analysis quiz, where you will assess your existing skillset against the key skills identified by the CamRDF. You are also asked to provide examples that demonstrate your skills, to help you think about your answers and provide a useful reference when creating CVs and applications in the future.

We highly recommend that you take this course at the beginning of your studies, but also each year thereafter, to continue guiding your researcher development. You may like to discuss your results with a Researcher Developer in a One-to-One.


  • Understand the key skills needed by a professional researcher
  • Assess your existing skillset against these key skills
  • Plan your development training for the coming year
