The Researcher Development Programme (RDP) provides a suite of training courses, workshops and events to support research students from all disciplines across the University of Cambridge. This provision is intended to complement that of the Schools and Departments, so that research students can develop the skills they need to be successful in their research in the short-term, and in whatever career they progress on to afterwards.

The training provided by the RDP is designed around the Researcher Development Framework (CamRDF) that was developed for Cambridge research students.

What is the Core Skills Training Programme?

The Postgraduate School of Life Sciences Core Skills Training Programme (CSTP) is the starting point for your Researcher Development and aims to:

1. Give you training in key areas of personal effectiveness and communication
2. Provide a foundation for further skills development in subsequent years
3. Give you recognition of your training upon completion of the CSTP
