Beginning Fall Term 2013/14, Professional Development Courses (PDC) have been incorporated into the curriculum of all MPhil and PhD programs. All newly admitted research postgraduate (RPg) students of the 2013/14 cohort are required to take PDC courses.
The offering of PDC courses is in line with University's mission to enhance RPg education. Beyond the research thesis, RPg students need a comprehensive set of professional skills for their personal growth and career development. The courses have been designed to help equip and enrich RPg students with essential non-academic attributes and skills, including ethics and research integrity, presentation and writing skills, teaching skills and career preparation etc. The course requirements vary from school to school.
