If you registered as a postgraduate researcher before 30 September 2017, you can choose whether to comply with the requirements of a relevant training pathway, or to complete a set number of credits. Information on the latter is given here.

If you registered as a postgraduate researcher on or after 1 October 2017, you must comply with a relevant training pathway’s requirements.

Postgraduate researchers should complete a Personal and Professional Development Plan in consultation with their Supervisory Team. For some training pathways there is a pre-populated version in the Additional documentation column to help you.
