Skills Development

Floating stickStudents and Early Researchers based in the Graduate School of Life Sciences are able to attend a wide range of activities designed to build on their research skills and experience and improve employability.

Improving your research and transferable skills will help you in many aspects of your life and specifically will help you to be more successful in your current degree or research project and in making the next move in your career.

Informal opportunities to develop your transferable skills surround you all the time in the University of Cambridge but the Graduate School of Life Sciences and the Researcher Development Programme (RDP) within Personal and Professional Development (PPD) also provide a programme with formal training throughout the year. In addition there is an enormous range of courses and seminars in areas such as computing, language and more subject specific fields.
