Welcome to our online course booking system, PDMS (Personal Development Management System).

Please choose the most relevant category for your career stage from the drop-down menu at the left of this page to view upcoming workshops and events. Please check back nearer to the advertised date if booking is not yet open. Before booking, please ensure that:

  • The workshop is relevant to your career stage.
  • You can commit to attend the whole workshop (from beginning to end).
  • You will be present at the relevant campus where face-to-face workshops are running.

If you have any questions about booking your place, please email us at: ResearchFutures@hw.ac.uk

Attendance and cancellation protocol

Arriving on time

Workshops and events start promptly at the advertised time. For face-to-face workshops, participants should arrive 10 minutes before the advertised time. If you are late, you may be refused entry. For online workshops, you should sign in 5 minutes before the scheduled start time.

Cancelling your place on a workshop

If you find that you need to cancel your booking, we ask that you do this as early as possible and at least 48 hours before the event (except in the case of unexpected illness or emergency). This may allow your place to be offered to one of your peers on our waiting lists and helps ensure that unused places are not wasting the University's resources.

You can cancel a booking, or review your training record, by clicking on My training record.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Research Futures Academy programmes!
