Our new-look qualifications are here!

Back to News

Professional development is at the core of ARMA’s mission. We developed our existing suite of qualifications back in 2013 and we’re delighted to have supported more than 125 students from over a dozen countries to successfully complete their Certificates!

Since then, there have been significant changes in the research environment. The combination of political upheaval, economic constraints, and changing regulatory and policy frameworks means that the profession now requires a different set of skills, so that’s why we’ve updated our qualifications.

Scroll down to find out what certificates we are offering for this year’s October cohort.

The Certificate in Research Management: Foundation has been designed as an introduction to the research management profession. It covers the broad range of topics required for an entry- level understanding of research management, whether that be in universities, funding organisations or other research organisations. Students are likely to be in an early stage of their professional development; either they have just started in their career, or they have moved from a very different work environment, with limited specialist knowledge about research management.

This certificate is available on both workshop support or online-only courses.

The Certificate in Research Management: Advanced has been designed to provide an insight into the technical elements of research management. It builds on the Certificate in Research Management: Foundation and looks in greater depth at the different roles and activities within the research management profession. It seeks to develop in students a broader view of the issues, not just from their own role, but from the wider organisational and sector position. The Advanced Certificate will help students to develop skills and behaviours that they need to continue to progress in their career.

This certificate is available on both workshop support or online-only courses.

The Certificate in Research Management is aimed primarily at professionals with at least four years of experience in the research administration and management field, or who have entered a new role with relevant experience. It provides an opportunity to acquire and demonstrate strategic and operational knowledge and skills. If you are looking to progress your career to a management role, or bring relevant experience to a new role in a funding organisation, then this qualification is the one most suited to you. You will join a cohort of research managers from other funding organisations, and be part of the wider group that includes colleagues from research organisations.
