Tools and resources

There are lots of toolkits and other internet resources to help you succeed in your research and studies. We will be sharing these resources online, so check back for updates.

PGR Personal Development Plan (PDP)

A PDP is a structured review and planning exercise which will help focus discussion with your supervisor. Your PDP will enable you to review and set development goals as you progress through your research degree. Many of the skills developed by research degree candidates are also required in careers outside of academia, so planning your training needs and undertaking relevant and timely training will enable you to complete your research degree on time and will stand you in good stead for a career in academia and beyond. You can find out more in our PGR PDP document.

In the meantime, visit the Vitae membership page for details of how to access more resources, and the external opportunities page for courses, funding and conferences.
