Throughout your candidature you will develop a range of research-related skills. Some skills will be specific to the type of research you are undertaking and are quite technical in nature: for example working with specific methodologies or data analysis techniques. Other skills are specific to the requirements of preparing and submitting your thesis, and still others relate to the ethical requirements and responsibilities of conducting and disseminating your research. The opportunities provided through the Career Development Framework address the latter two types of research skills: those that will ensure you conduct and share your research ethically and those that will assist you through the research experience including preparation and submission of your thesis.  

Categories that focus on the development of research skills include:
