    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 doctoral.schools@vub.be.
