Transversal Training Activities

The Doctoral School of the University of Valladolid organises a series of non-compulsory training activities, structured through modules:

Module 1. Ethics and good practices in research.
Module 2. Open Science
Module 3. Research management
Module 4. Writing and communication in the scientific field
Module 5. Bibliography and bibliometrics
Module 6. Use of English in the scientific environment
Module 7. Research methods and techniques
Module 8. Doctoral students' professional careers
Module 9. Researcher's personal management

In order to cater for the different circumstances of doctoral students (employed at the University, professionals in different fields, Spaniards, foreigners, part-time or full-time students), activities are offered at different levels of attendance. Depending on the contents and methodological conditions, some of them are face-to-face, others are virtual, and in some cases, they may be broadcast live or recorded, in an attempt to reach the greatest number of doctoral students.

Their administrative management - pre-registration and enrolment - is carried out through the   Doctoral Programme's Academic. Management application.
