Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership


Training Needs Analysis

The AHRC expects all of its PhD students to undertake an individual training needs analysis at an early stage in their project. In Cambridge, this analysis takes the form of a 30-minute interview to discuss the ways in which study visits, conference trips, placements, workshops, language tuition, and other forms of training or developmental activity might contribute to a student’s PhD or broader professional development. The interview also focuses on possible uses of additional AHRC funding to support students’ primary research or career development plans.
