Self-assessment tool

The PhD Competence Model contains a set of core competencies every PhD candidate should have. Next to academic skills, it emphasises personal development and career orientation. To help you identify what skills and competencies you may want to develop or improve, we encourage you to take a self-assessment of competence development. This tool provides you with the possibility of monitoring your development during your PhD journey. We advise you to do this yearly, as part of your preparation for your annual PhD progress meetings.

Note: The members of Young Science in Transition are currently developing an interactive app that is more user-friendly than the current excel file. Keep an eye on this website to find out when the new tool will be released!
