Planning and Managing a Research Project (Blended)


Managing a project, such as your research project, is a key skill in being an effective researcher. Yet project management is often poorly understood, which in turn can lead to projects running out of time and money, and overworking people.

The overall aim of this blended online and face-to-face course is to give you the foundational project management knowledge you need to complete your research project and the opportunity to embed the learning. Through online topics and goals, by the end of the course, participants will know how to:

  • Plan a project
  • Implement a project
  • Define a project
  • Manage yourself effectively
  • Run effective project meetings
  • Identify and manage risks to your project
  • Work well with others
  • Cope when things go wrong
  • Close a project
Target audience

PhD Students and Postdocs
