RDC sessions play a crucial role in helping graduate students develop the skills they need to successfully complete their PhD and prepare them for their future careers. These sessions are a vital opportunity for students to learn about the research of others in related fields and thus gain an awareness of the activities in their own research group and the wider Department. They also play a critical role in improving the students’ ability to write and present their research in English which is essential to success at their first year assessment.

All first year students in Div D are expected to participate in all sessions, unless they are attending an RDC run by another division in agreement with their supervisor. Attendance for each session will be logged and recorded as part of students’ individual training records
