Research Staff Development Programme

The UCL Research Staff Development Programme (RSDP) is a central programme open to all research staff from post-doc to research leaders and principal investigators. It aims to support the professional and career development of researchers, to enable them to make the most of their potential and to help ensure the ongoing creation of excellent research outcomes at UCL and beyond. This provision is intended to be in addition to the more discipline-based training which Faculties or Departments are able to offer locally.

For a full list of courses under the Research Staff Development Programme, see the Programme by A-Z.
