Sist oppdatert: 23.08.18 17:09
Writing a PhD benefits from the acquisition of competencies outside of the specific study, e.g. being aware of current academic norms, knowing how to retrieve, evaluate, and treat sources, being up-to-date about open access publishing, and handling scientific research data according to best practice.
Take control of your PhD Journey is an annual seminar series designed for PhD students in their first year, coming from all fields of study. The seminar series is offered through a collaboration between the University Library, High North Academy and the Faculty of Humanities, Social Sciences and Education. It provides the participant with 2 ECTS points.
This autumn, the seminar series takes place on October 10-12 (campus Tromsø). Deadline for applications: September 1st.
