The aim of the MU Research Skills Development Programme (RSDP) is to draw on the expertise of the Graduate School and Research Development Office, in conjunction with faculties, departments and professional units within the university, to support MU researchers in acquiring the skills and experience necessary to become independent academic researchers and to develop their careers in multiple settings beyond academia. 

The Research Skills Development Programme Booklet can be found here. The programme is broken down into seven thematic areas, as indicated below. Depending on the nature of the training, sessions are open to research students, post-doctoral researchers and academic staff.
