The University of Dundee is dedicated to supporting the development of staff and postgraduate researchers through its investment in their on-going training and development.  A wide range of training opportunities are available to all members of staff via our online resources and programme of workshops.


To find out what's on offer, check out our programme catalogues for researcher development and professional development. Make sure you also keep an eye out for our monthly newsletters which highlight new and additional opportunities. 

You can also see an overview of the current training programme by browsing.  


In the first instance, if you would like to develop a skill, please refer to our Self Directed Learning pages where a suite of free, online resources has been curated for our organisational needs.


We strongly encourage conversations about training requirements to take place between line managers/ supervisors and staff. If you would like support with this, please see our Staff Development Guidelines, OSAR Guidance or contact us by emailing


To help ensure that workshops run smoothly and that participants get the most out of them, we have created etiquette statements for our online  and classroom-based training sessions. We would ask that you please take a moment to familiarise yourself with this.
