About the Postgraduate Renewal Programme

The Postgraduate Renewal Programme was established to deliver the ambition of the College Strategic Plan to fundamentally renew postgraduate education in Trinity. The changing landscape of graduate education and research is highlighted in Trinity’s Strategic Plan (2020-2025), where five of the nine cross-cutting goals incorporate renewal of postgraduate education:

Goal 2: We will support a transformative student experience

2.3. Fundamentally re-evaluate the student experience for both postgraduate taught and postgraduate research students and ensure that their bespoke needs are met.

Goal 3: We will practice next generation teaching and learning

3.4 Meet the changing student profile, within the lifetime of this Strategic Plan, by instituting a major and systemic renewal of all facets of postgraduate education. 3.5 Develop a suite of new postgraduate taught modules and courses across schools and faculties 3.6 Fundamentally renew our structured PhD programme.

Goal 4: We will stand up for research, its quality and impact

4.5 Institute a major and systemic renewal of all aspects of doctoral education in Trinity to ensure the distinctive character of that education as a holistic concept in which doctoral students receive a diversity of cutting-edge skills training to complement their research.
