PhD Course Centre

The PhD Course Centre of the Graduate School of Life Sciences offers PhD candidates the opportunity to shape their skills according to the PhD Competence Model.

Our courses are meant to help PhDs in their current research project and in their future career, be it in research or otherwise. These courses complement our PhD programmes (with their disciplinary courses) and PhD events. In addition, we offer support for supervisors (promotores and copromotores) to get the best out of their research team.

If you would like to stay updated about our courses, events, and everything that is important for you to know as a GSLS PhD candidate, subscribe for our PhD Update here.
