The Career Development Framework (CDF) provides directed, experiential learning to help you work towards your research and professional goals. 

Career Development overview flyerUQ’s CDF was developed in consultation with students and industry and provides a skills and personal development based approach to research training. While recognising the centrality of excellent disciplinary training provided within the UQ research degree, the CDF provides you with additional developmental activities in the following three key areas:

  • Transferable Skills
  • Professional Skills
  • Research Skills

Training covers topics such as research integrity, networking, communication skills and inter-cultural communication, writing skills, teamwork, CV writing, entrepreneurship, business acumen, resilience and emotional intelligence; among others. This overview provides a summary of each training session.

Training sessions are run throughout the year which provides some flexibility for you to decide which training is right for you and when. You will need to register for each session. You can register through the links provided in the Events Calendar.
