Within the Social Sciences Division there are some 1,600 DPhil students and 500 research staff, for whom we offer a diverse range of resources. Our provision is anchored around key themes of professional development, as laid out below. 

Within each theme you will find links to courses and opportunities, a growing library of resources, and links to related websites and resources. If you’re here to explore and book a specific course, please go straight to the ‘Events Section’ at the bottom of the page.

Please note: we are one of a suite of training providers across the university, and most research students build a bespoke programme of training and development based on individual needs. You should be aware of your departmental provision, as well as term cards for the Bodleian Libraries, IT Services, and (depending on the nature of your project) possibly other divisional programmes.
