TS00170 Research and Professional Development Planning; Get the most out of your RPDP

Research and professional development planning is an integral part of the Structured PhD programme at UCD. The purpose of such planning is to ensure that a student’s work is clearly focused on achieving research and professional development goals. This will play a major part in informing the trajectory of the student’s research and in their training and development as a researcher. The RPDP is also a useful resource when it comes to writing-up and plays a key role in the student’s Transfer Assessment process.
