LDC Development Programme 2021/22

In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, 2020-2021 has seen the LDC Development Team transferring its face-to-face sessions to online delivery while maintaining the depth and quality of the provision.

The LDC Development programme is designed particularly for UoL Postgraduate researchers and will continue to be delivered as live online events so that all postgraduate researchers can access development opportunities & support flexibly, actively engage, stay connected and find new ways to thrive in their research in these challenging times.

Please return to this page regularly as we will be updating the listing throughout the academic year.
