The PhD will require the student to develop their research skills and, to this end, they will be able to undertake a research skills audit and to attend seminars and workshops on research methods in the first year: in this way, students undertaking a PhD in Creative Writing will participate in School-wide training seminars which will develop useful research, teaching and IT skills, as well as seminars in relation to publication, authors' rights etc, which will be particularly useful to students of creative writing.
