Transferable skills training

PhD programmes include both transversal and specific activities in the area of each programme.

Transversal activities are useful for people who are doing their doctorate outside their area of knowledge, since they offer the opportunity to acquire transversal competences during the training period of the PhD programme. You can find the transversal activities organised by the UAB and presented by the School for Doctoral Studies in all together in this section for quick and easy access to the information.

For the specific activities, you can find the information in individual folders for each of the PhD programmes.

Within the transversal activities are included language courses that the Language Service of the UAB program specifically for PhD students: the course Support for writing a doctoral thesis in Catalan and the course Thesis writing in English.

For further information on how to get the attendance certificates for transversal activities, please contact Gestió pr.euraxess@uab.cat. Note that those activities organised by the Servei de Llengües (s.llengues@uab.cat) and Servei de Biblioteques (s.biblioteques@uab.cat) are directly certified by them.

This list will be updated as new courses are confirmed.

Those attending the seminar The Passion Generation will make an exercise of personal reflection to find what motivates them and passionate them with the objective of integrating these passions in their professional career.

The Doctoral Studies as a Formative Process


Doctoral School wants to boost training in transversal skills during the formative stage of the doctorate. Therefore a welcome session was scheduled for the new doctoral students that took place on January 28.

More than 370 people registered for the conference, aimed primarily at people who incorporated the doctorate this year. This session has highlighted the importance of ethics in research and how it is reflected in the code of good practice. It has also been explained the importance of the document of doctoral commitment that is signed at the beginning of the process of elaboration of the doctoral thesis. At the same time, emphasis has been placed on the value of transversal skills training and excellence in research, while at the same time being basic in order to be valued in very different professional settings. The lectures were broadcast by streaming and were followed via the internet by users from all over the world.

UAB wants to consolidate this model of transversal skills training activities.
