In Gateway, in the Online courses section, you will find a series of research methods courses, and others on research ethics, research integrity and literature review. If the link above doesn’t work for you, you can find these by logging into Gateway and going to Online Courses.

On the Library and Learning Services Web you will find Skills Hub. Here you can learn research methods basics, how to use SPSS and other statistical tools. The University has a subscription to LinkedIn Learning, where you can find courses on lots of different topics, including statistical analysis, SPSS and R. If you have never used Linkedin Learning before here is how you access it.
If you feel your skills are up to scratch why not refresh your memory on the research degree processes and what is required at each stage of your doctorate. You will find that and other useful information, including policies, here in the Research Student Toolkit.
