The University's Quality Framework and Doctoral Training Entities

The University contains a range of externally-funded entities that provide doctoral training for cohorts of research students, including those funded with the Research Councils and with the Wellcome Trust. These entities are a leading edge in terms of new approaches to doctoral training.

Quality assurance is an important consideration for the entities and they connect with the University's Quality Framework. The Guidance on the Quality Framework for Doctoral Training Entities (PDF, 445kB)‌‌ bridges the multiple strands of the Framework in terms of how they relate to doctoral training entities, and highlights relevant policies and regulations to inform and facilitate. It also sets out who the key contacts are at both faculty and University level.
