Science and Health Graduate Training Elements

Click on the blue arrows below to view a list of Graduate Training Element (GTE) modules that postgraduate research students may take in the academic year 2022/23.  If you are undertaking a structured PhD programme the minimum credits you should undertake during the course of your PhD is 20 credits.  The modules listed below range from 5-10 credits and it is recommended you sign up for 1-2 modules per year of your PhD programme. 

When considering training needs, students, should use the school specific structured pathway as a guide. Please consult with your supervisor before you sign up for any GTE modules so that you receive advice on which modules to take in relation to your research. 

To register go to the online registration page available via student apps during the registration period.
