Updated Research and Professional Development Plan
Research and Professional Development Planning (RPDP) is integral to the Structured PhD programme at UCD. The purpose of such planning is to ensure that our graduate researchers’ work is clearly focused on achieving their research and professional development goals. Engaging with the RPDP will aid the trajectory of PhD research and their training and development as a researcher.
Please be aware that UCD Graduate Studies has a new updated version of the Research and Professional Development Planning document (RPDP). This document is now one of the mandatory ones that the Transfer Assessment Panel will base its judgement on when determining if a PhD student progresses from Stage 1 to Stage 2 of a Doctoral programme, or a Research Master’s Degree Student transfers to a PhD Programme.
