NVivo Training

Epigeum Online Courses

The Epigeum Research programmes support academics throughout all stages of their career and are designed to be flexible enough to fit around a researcher’s busy schedule. Guidance is provided on diverse topics from research integrity to how to commercialise research.

Programme materials are developed to reflect key issues in research practice and will help participants reflect on their own research practices and opportunities for further development.


The Alternative Guide to Postgraduate Funding Online is all about alternative sources of funding - especially charities - which can make awards (fees, maintenance, research costs) to any student regardless of subject, or nationality.

The Alternative Guide Online contains a huge database of funding opportunities, comprehensive guidance, and numerous tools to help you prepare a winning grant application. Royal Holloway has purchased a license to the Guide, and so it’s free for all students and staff to use!

See the RDP Moodle site for registration and access details.
