A-Z of Research Training
This list provides all of the training opportunities open to doctoral researchers. Research staff are welcome to join us.
Although we have tried to bring everything the university offers together in one place, you need to follow these links to find information about what the stand-alone sessions or modules cover - this helps you to make an informed decision as to whether the training will meet your needs.
- All training is mapped to the UK's Researcher Development Framework.
- Modules run once a year and have enrolment processes.
- Stand-alone training sessions run more often - often repeated from autumn/winter in spring/summer.
- Stand-alone training items on the list appear in your diary.
- You can accept or decline the invitation to create a personalised training schedule.
- Where booking procedures are required by the provider, open the invitation to see and follow these.
- If something is listed without an active link, this means it will return but no new dates have been announced by the provider.
- Induction and Outduction training runs three times every year.
- For anything that is discontinued, we remove these altogether to avoid confusion.
- Research seminars are not listed in the A-Z as they change substantively year-on-year.
- Can't find what you're looking for?
- Many of us offer one-to-one consultations for training and personalised development so that you can learn new skills even when training has finished.

Shut Up and Write!
These sessions are structured, collective writing sessions for you to set goals, get drafting, reflect, check-in and carry on. Many people find committing to weekly or daily sessions useful in helping them commit to protected time to get scholarly (and other) writing done.
- We used to run our own at Bradford but globally this movement has grown and there are now in-person groups all over and (understandably) a surge in online groups, so that you can find motivation to write at times/locales to suit you.
- SUAW boasts over 66,000 people writing across 316 countries.
- There are buttons for finding an online group or local 'chapter' on the SUAW portal.
- Many groups often use pomodoro or other techniques to structure writing time and maximise focus.
- To join a session you currently need to set up a free Meet Up account profile.
- The site provides links and instructions for this if you select the Login/Sign Up option at the top right of your screen.
