What is the Postgraduate Certificate in Transferable Skills in Science?

The PGCTSS is an accredited qualification designed to enable you:

  • to be a successful doctoral researcher undertaking world leading research
  • to improve your research effectiveness
  • to maximize your talents in your future career
  • to understand what you already know and how to use those skills to maximum effect.



Who is the PGCTSS for?

There are two separate courses within the PGCTSS, for PhD students and post doctoral researchers. Applications are also welcome for the certificate or individual modules from other interested parties (fees may apply). We currently have over 350 students working to achieve this certificate.

Fees are met by the University for all Warwick students and post doctoral researchers in the Science and Medical faculties because we believe it is a priority for our researchers to be fully equipped with the skills they need to be successful scientists.

How does the PGCTSS relate to RSSP?

RSSP is the central Research Student Skills Programme. If you are struggling with aspects of e.g. Doctoral Skills 1 you should look for the appropriate RSSP course.

"Britain faces many challenges in the 21st Century and needs scientists with the right skills to find answers, build a strong economy and keep us globally competitive."
