Centre for Training & Development (CTD)

The UT strongly believes in recruiting, developing and challenging talented employees. A wide range of courses, training and coaching is designed specifically for scientists and support staff. For PhD students, we have made an attractive training program. Explore your options on this site.

Each year, you can spend (at least) two days on your personal development (development days). These days can be used for a wide range of activities which contribute to your personal development and your employability in your current or future position. You can, for instance, use these days for any of the internal development opportunities offered by the UT, for a short-term internship in a different position, to attend conferences or external training courses, or to participate in other training activities. See for all information this website.

All face-to-face courses have been postponed until further notice. Possible online alternatives to these courses are currently being looked at.

It is also possible to follow online training courses via the 2 existing platforms of the UT, via Good Habitz and Futurelearn . For PhDs, keep in mind that Good Habitz does not issue a certificate and therefore no ECs.
