New Academics and Fellows Programme

The Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health New Academics and Fellows Programme (NAP) is part of a University wide approach to support new academics and to provide academic staff with the skills they need to carry out their research and teaching and learning duties at the highest level.

The programme is designed to be flexible and provides training in three key development areas.

The NAP is also accredited by the Higher Education Academy (HEA) and successful completion of the programme will entitle you to become a Fellow of the HEA.

To register for a place on the NAP programme, please complete the online NAP registration form.

Our online research integrity course is mandatory for all research active staff at the University. The course will ensure that researchers understand their professional responsibilities and also provides practical advice on dealing with the complex issues that can arise while planning, conducting and reporting your research. Completion of the online unit is also the equivalent to the completion of one NAP unit.
