Many facilities offer hands-on training and advice. In addition there are timetabled courses and general seminars that help develop specific research skills, including some from various course providers outside the School itself. Not all departmental training is listed here. Your department or institute can advise you of other opportunities.
Please carefully check how to register for courses and contact the organizer to request permission to attend if appropriate. This is the case with some courses for graduate students put on by specific departments, and PhD programmes, if you are not a member. Space may be very restricted. Some researchers attend undergraduate biology courses to build knowledge. Attendance at maths courses is also sometimes helpful. Again please seek permission to attend from the organizer.
