Academic Requirements

Professional Development Course for RPgs

In today’s competitive employment environment for research postgraduates (RPgs), academic knowledge is only one part of the equation. For success, a full package comprising sound general knowledge, research & professional skills and an innovative mindset, along with self-management ability, is required. To build such all-round capabilities, the University has introduced Professional Development Courses (PDCs) to equip our MPhil and PhD students with a comprehensive set of essential transferable skills to enhance their personal growth and career development. 

All RPgs (both full-time and part-time) are required to take two PDCs as part of their program requirements. 

Students should refer to the Postgraduate Program Catalog for the specific program curriculum, and  the PDC system for the course requirements of their own intake cohort. Enquiries can be directed to the relevant department or program office.
