Research Integrity - core course 

This introductory course is compulsory for all University of Oxford research students including CDT students.

For evidence that you have completed the core course, you will need to take and pass the quizzes at the end of each module and score an overall pass mark of 80% or over. Once you have passed all the quizzes, you will then be sent an email certificate of completion of the core course.
