Overview Phd's

At the UT inspirational education, groundbreaking research and relevant innovation are key factors for success. Over 3000 researchers and professional staff are responsible for this. Since the UT is part of an international academic environment where changes take place in quick succession, it is very important that employees continue to develop themselves. For PhD-candidates the primary goal is for them to expand their academic skills, especially in writing an excellent thesis.

In order to meet the need for professional development of PhD candidates the UT has a wide range of subjects in generic skills. We expect all PhD’s to complete the 5EC Basic PhD Skills in their first year (please note: senior PhD candidates who missed out can still join). Subsequently some more advanced subjects, listed under the various headings can be taken. Apart from that the TGS Broadening courses are open to all PhD’s.
