The University Strategy includes a commitment to ‘developing our people’, enabling each individual to reach their full potential and achieve both individual and collective excellence.

The Professional Development Unit (PDU) team and PDU Associates works in partnership with Faculties and Professional Services to offer a range of learning and development activities, including  face to face courses and online resources. The activities are specifically designed to support the development of all staff including academics, professional services, technical, community and operational staff.

Based within the PDU is the University’s Researcher Development and Graduate Centre (RDGC) whose aim is to enhance the research-centered learning and personal development of postgraduate students through promotion of shared opportunities for learning and generic skills training.
