The research institutes are supported by the Research Graduate School (RGS) which coordinates the quality assurance and administrative arrangements for all students on research degree programmes. It is also responsible for the provision of generic training.
The RGS works closely with research institutes to ensure that all students have appropriate support throughout their studies and access to training and development programmes that will complement their research and provide a foundation for their future careers.
