For students, the research skill developing journey throughout their degree, and onto employment is vital.

This section focuses on the use of the RSD to enable clear connections between diverse experiences across degrees that are designed to develop research skills both for individuals and small groups.

One of the main features of explicit research skill development using the RSD is to enable the incremental upskilling of students over the semesters and years of a degree. Consistency does not entail a homogenous experience, but rather a diverse set of experiences that uses the language of the RSD in common.
