Welcome to the online programme for the University of Westminster Graduate School Doctoral Researcher Development Programme (DRDP).

The DRDP consists of tailor-made workshops, specialist skills sessions and personal development planning activities which will benefit both your research and you as a researcher throughout your degree. Many of the sessions also provide excellent opportunities for you to think about how your research will contribute to life after the PhD.

The workshops are grouped into one of 5 categories. These categories reflect the various topics and/or skills that might be developed as you embark upon and continue your research degree studies. Each workshop description includes a booking link.

All upcoming workshops are also listed in date order in the VRE Calendar. To access the VRE, simply follow the VRE tab on the main menu bar on the right hand side of this page.

The Graduate School is continually adding to and reshaping the sessions on offer through the DRDP as your needs change and as our wider student body changes. We would love to hear what you think – this really helps us to make the DRDP as supportive as possible.
