    PhD workshops, seminars and training sessions

    The Doctoral Schools and the Researcher Training & Development Office sponsor a variety of events.  From this academic year on, you can browse and register for them in the VUB LRN catalogue for 2019-2020 with more ease via TEO Learning. That means you'll see the total VUB offer for all staff in one go, but can still do a filtered search for courses in a specific category!

    To help guide PhD candidates along the course of their research, the Researcher Training & Development Office organises the Doctoral education tracks. Should you ever feel stuck, either at the start of your research or in later stages, you are always welcome to join these tracks!

    If you have any suggestions for new workshops or seminars, use this online form or send an e-mail at rtdo@vub.be.

    Introduction days for new PhD candidates

    As of academic year 2017-2018, the first day of the introduction days for new PhD candidates is compulsory. It includes necessary information about which services to contact, how the doctoral schools operate, what is good scientific conduct and what not, etc. Candidates have to present proof of attendance in their annual progress reports.

    Individual faculties may decide to make the doctoral training programme or parts of it compulsory, based on what they consider to be an important factor in the prospective PhD candidate’s personal file.

    We organise the introduction day twice each new academic year. The first one will be organised in September during the Lecture-free week/Welcome week for newstudents and the second one in February during the Lecture-free week. (exact dates will be communicated later)

    Digital introduction day: Friday 18th September

    Are you a new PhD candidate at the VUB? Then be sure to mark Friday 18th September in your agenda for the online edition of the introduction day for new PhD's. 

    If you're just starting out as a PhD at the VUB, you'll have a lot of questions about the ins and outs of our university. By following this digital introduction, you'll gain insight into the different services and structures at the VUB (ranging from career to administration to legal and safety...).

    The digital introduction day will consist of 2 parts: 

    Prep work: Video presentations/tutorials about our services to be watched beforehand; 

    September 18th: 

    Live virtual Q&A sessions with the experts from the video presentations;

    2 interactive webinars to get a deeper understanding of “Science integrity” and “Open science”.

    Attendance to the introday is compulsory for PhD candidates at least once during their PhD trajectory.
