"The CDT taught course gave me a new perspective on learning. The first week of lectures opened my eyes to the great opportunities of the research program.

-- Chiara Pischetola

"The lab rotations were my favourite part as they helped me to quickly settle into the department and feel part of a group"

-- Ivalina Minova

The literature review has been really helpful in giving us a focused approach to beginning our PhD project. It allowed us to have a head start, and much of the cohort found that through writing the literature review we would come up with new ideas for our projects as well as developing our understanding

The best part of the taught course was the presentations we delivered on "impossible scientific discoveries". I’ve only ever done important presentations that involved a lot of stress. This exercise was the first time I have ever presented in a relaxed manner. It gave me the opportunity to see how I should be presenting because I wasn’t distracted by nerves.

The most important thing I have taken from the taught program is that my presentation skills have improved dramatically
