Wider Training Provision

One of the benefits of being part of the SEDTC's consortium is that our students have access to wider training provisions across all of our partner institutions.  In addition to the Advanced Training and required course modules offered, it has been agreed that opening up various training programmes within our Researcher Development Programmes and relevant departments would be an excellent way for our students to utilise their connection to four institutions, rather than merely their host university.  Please see more information on the courses offered at our four partner institutions below. 


Please note that each of the below courses at the University of Kent will cost £30 for non-Kent SEDTC students to attend.  Many of these courses will run more than once, so please visit the page or send an email to the address listed under 'Booking Contact' for more information.
