Researcher Development Framework (RDF)

Courses at Swansea are mapped to the Vitae Researcher Development Framework. Vitae is an independent professional body which sets standards for researcher development and training. The RDF describes the knowledge, skills, behaviours and personal qualities of researchers and encourages them to aspire to excellence through achieving higher levels of development. Details of where a particular workshop fits into the RDF are provided on its booking page.
