This research degree incorporates a programme of supporting studies designed to develop knowledge and skills of all aspects of the research process, including the funding and dissemination of research.

Researchers are also invited to take part in our own Research Conferences giving you the opportunity to present your work and discuss with other researchers at NTU. There are some opportunities for research students to prepare for an academic career by teaching undergraduate students or supervising laboratory work, and students may take part in the Introduction to Learning and Teaching in Higher Education training programme.
