All our PhD students enrol in the Nottingham Translational Research (N-Trans) Doctoral Training Programme.
This structured training programme will not only provide you with specialised scientific and methodological knowledge, but also teaches you invaluable generic skills, such as becoming a confident presenter and writing scientific papers. You will have regular contact with your supervisor(s) and submit yearly reports about your progress to assist you in writing-up as you go along.
The N-Trans doctoral training programme equips early-career researchers with these essential skill sets and knowledge. Training focuses on:
- developing skills in cross-disciplinary communication
- understanding the techniques available in clinical and basic sciences research
- appreciating the possibilities and limitations of other, complementary disciplines.
The programme is delivered in a modular format.
Prior learning (whether formally taught or experiential) may be given equivalence to existing modules.
