Fistral Training & Development Lecture - Project Management in the Real World

4.95 out of 5 – “I’m going to plan the final stages of my PhD more thoroughly using techniques provided. I feel more confident I can plan and finish on time now.”

The University of Bath Doctoral College researchers and PGRs attended our Introduction to Project Management and Intermediate Project Management courses held at University Bath at the end of last month.

These are run as part of our Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) suite of courses, preparing researchers to sit the Project Management Institute’s globally-recognised professional exam.

CAPM professional certification is recognised across sectors and across the world. It provides a real differentiator when it comes to moving forward in current or different roles – in academic and non-academic roles engaged with industry.

Researchers gave the sessions 4.95 out of 5 (5 being Excellent), with a wide range of comments indicating the usefulness of the sessions as well as their applicability to PhD and beyond:

  • “I’m going to plan the final stages of my PhD more thoroughly using techniques provided. I feel more confident I can plan and finish on time now.”
