Northern Advanced Research Training Initiative

NARTI is a network of research-led universities in the north of England, including the University of Bradford Faculty of Managaement and Law. It provides specialist advanced training through the facilitation of events, retreats and conferences to establish networks to share cross-regional expertise. It is organised and adminsitered by the University of Leeds.

It supports researchers by:

  • facilitating opportunities for doctoral, early career researchers and staff to attend events such as regional events;
  • running an Annual Conference for doctoral researchers focused on advanced training;
  • providing an arena for these people to network and share research interests, contacts and best practice.

National Centre for Research Methods

There are downloadable resources, and more importantly, specialist training. However, it is important to know that these training events are not free but most have reduced rates for students.

NCRM can be a good starting point for thinking about training, if you and your supervisors agree that external training is required for something that is not available at Bradford.

All of their training is searchable by keyword.  Here's just a small sample to show the kind of frequency and range of topics:
