About the PhD skills development courses

In addition to subject-specific courses, UiS offers training aimed at the development of personal and professional skills that are useful in a future working life, whether it is in or outside academia.

Most of the courses are held on a half-yearly or yearly basis, whereas others can be one-time courses. Annoucements for upcoming courses can also be found on our Intranet. As a general rule, the courses are only open for PhD candidates and postdoctoral fellows affiliated with the University of Stavanger, who will receive information about the courses via e-mail.
