COVID-19: Professional Development Programme Delivery

Please note that the Professional Development Programme will be delivered remotely for the remainder of the 2019/20 academic session. Wherever possible, we will be sticking to previously timetabled courses, however, please check programme/individual course pages for up-to-date information. Courses being delivered remotely will be clearly signposted on the website and should be booked in the usual way, using the online form.

It should be noted that not all courses on the programme are suitable for remote delivery, please contact the Graduate School if a course you are interested in is not currently available.


The Research Computing Skills and Data Science Programme consists of a range of courses in research computing and data science, all of which aim to enable doctoral students to complete their research successfully and effectively.  The courses are facilitated by the Graduate School staff, academics and GTAs.  All tutors have an academic background and have been exposed to multiple research computing and data science projects in their discipline.
