Training Requirements for Research Students

Research students at UCL are expected to take full advantage of the training on offer and should be aiming to participate in the Doctoral Skills Development Programme and/or appropriate other activities to a degree equivalent to two weeks per year.

Each training activity on the Skills Development Programme website is assigned a number of points. A point is worth approximately ½ day of training: two weeks per year is therefore equivalent to 20 points per year.

Research students should therefore be aiming to accrue 20 points per year (60 points over 3 years, or 80 points over 4 years) from the courses on offer through the programme, departmental courses and other point bearing activities listed on this site.

Research Council Funded Students - Training Requirements

All Research Council funded research students are required by their funding bodies to participate in the Doctoral Skills Development Programme and/or appropriate departmental courses to a degree equivalent to two weeks per year of their funded studentship (ie 3 years for 3-year MPhil/PhDs and 4 years for 4-year PhDs, EngDs etc).
