Academic and Professional Development

The Academic Service provides courses, training sessions and activities for Ph.D. researchers and post-doctoral fellows geared towards their academic and professional development. Some courses may be helpful throughout the Ph.D. programme whereas others aim to support research, help develop scholarly practices, build a portfolio of transferable skills and smoothen the transition to the job market. 

These activities complement the support provided by the Departments.
