'Research Skills' is a suite of programmes, each consisting of short online courses, together with a learning management system.

If you are studying for a master’s or PhD, embarking on a research career, or if you are an experienced academic looking to gain new insight, then these e-learning programmes will help you to develop key knowledge and skills to kick start or refresh your research career. Many of the courses will also be relevant to those seeking to pursue a non-academic career.

If your institution subscribes to all or some of the programmes in 'Research Skills Online', you can register for free by clicking on the 'Register' tab above. After you have completed a course (by completing the final quiz) you will be given a personalised course completion certificate that you can save, print or send by e-mail. For more information on how this works, click on 'Help' above.

Like other learning management systems, your institution is able to log on and track your progress if they wish. For more information on this, please check our 'Privacy policy'.
