The RDP team is responsible for enhancing and supporting the research environment at Anglia Ruskin University. A major part of our function is providing researcher development courses, workshops and seminars, particularly for postgraduate research degree students and their supervisors as well as early career researchers.
In addition, we engage with other initiatives that support and enhance research - for example, we are responsible for Anglia Ruskin's involvement in the Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) and similar exercises; we support institutional preparations for the Research Excellence Framework (REF); and we are involved with implementing the various national Concordats that set out best practice requirements for the research environment.
We organise the Annual Students’ Research Conference and Supervisors’ Development Workshops. Our programme encompasses the mandatory core training classed as Stage 1, 2 and 3 covering Induction, Making Effective Presentations, Academic Writing, Thesis and Examination Preparation, and Workshops for Research Ethics.
Training courses can be booked via ProgressPlatform
The University also provides access to Research skills online via Epigeum
