Training opportunities for research students 

At Aston, we recognise that providing our research students with skills training opportunities and other relevant support and guidance is vital because this enables them not only to successfully complete their research degree but also to become highly-skilled and employable so that they can succeed in their chosen career either in academia or beyond by the end of their research project. 

That is why as a research student at Aston, besides your subject-specific postgraduate training and other development opportunities, which are delivered by your School, you are offered a broad range of useful resources, courses, advice and guidance for your personal and career development. These training and development opportunities are coordinated through the Aston Graduate School by the Graduate Development Team, led by Staff & Graduate Development.

This webpage is specially created to provide you with all information on the courses and workshops that are delivered and coordinated by Staff & Graduate Development as well as on other activities or resources that are relevant and available to you.
