RESEARCH SKILLS & TRANSFERABLE SKILLS - COURSE OFFER 2021

Below is an overview of the available training in research skills and transferable skills, open to PhD students and/or postdocs from all disciplines in 2021. 'Transferable' skills are skills that may be useful in academic contexts, but may also be transferred to non-academic work environments.

As soon as all necessary information is available, you can click the activity title in the table below in order to get more details on content, target group, registration and practical arrangements. All activities are in English, unless explicitly mentioned otherwise.

An important part of preparing for further professional steps is becoming (more) aware of the competences you have developed and/or want to develop. Therefore, the detail page of each course mentions the competences from the UHasselt competency overview for PhD holders that are actively dealt with within the course. The table below mentions the main competency cluster for each activity.
