Research training

The University of Bedfordshire offers a full programme of training sessions for students on research degrees. From the 'Introduction to the Teaching and Learning' to 'Advanced Literature Searching' and 'Research Methods' there are sessions available to support the researcher every step of the way.

We encourage our students to make full use of the training available. Our training programme is revised annually to reflect the changes in the world of research today.

Enrolled students can gain access to the Research Training Programme via BREO (Bedfordshire Resources for Education Online).
