Doctoral Training Programmes

Doctoral Training Programmes

The Doctoral Training Programme is structured into two distinct areas: the Core Training offered by the School or Academy and the Personal and Professional Development (PPD) Training offered jointly at the university level, which consists of various in-person workshops arranged by XJTLU and online workshops from the University of Liverpool.

The Core Training is to help develop your knowledge base and skills within your chosen discipline, inter-disciplinary or multidisciplinary area. In contrast, the PPD Training will allow you to enhance your skills via training that covers research methods, communication, impact, ethics and governance, employability, and entrepreneurship. The PPD workshops at XJTLU are designed, developed and delivered by the Graduate School, Educational Development Unit (EDU) and the English Language Centre (ELC) and cover a wide range of important topics, such as research integrity, working towards publications, preparing for or doing your PhD viva, and so on.
