Introducing Inkpath

Inkpath is your one-stop-shop for finding courses and managing your own professional development as a researcher.

From Inkpath, you can browse development opportunities from the Researcher Development team, as well as courses and programmes provided by many University-wide specialist teams, including the Language Centre, Careers Service, Public Engagement and more.

Inkpath is more than just a booking platform though. An integrated Skills Analysis Survey helps you to identify areas to work on, and you can track the time you've dedicated to different skills and set goals accordingly. You can also keep track of all the researcher development activities you've undertaken: log your conference attendance, teaching experience and external courses to keep everything in one place. Finally, you can upload notes on your courses - during or after the event - and even documents, such as a copy of the slides or a certificate to show you passed.

Inkpath puts you in control of your own researcher development.


Please note: we recommend that users who require screen reader technology use the desktop browser version of Inkpath rather than the mobile version.
