Transferable Skills Studies

The UEF Doctoral School organises transferable skills courses which are common to all doctoral students at UEF.

  •     is able to plan a scientific research project, including problematization, methods, resources and scheduling
  •     acquires good communication skills: general and scientific oral and writing skills and popularization of science.
  •     learns management and teamwork skills
  •     can give education and is able to work in various expert tasks.
