Workshops Career Services for PhDs

A healthy work-life balance, interpersonal skills and career orientation have a positive impact on your productivity and well-being at work. With our training courses, you can work on your employability skills. This is a long-term investment, because you can use these skills in every challenge you face in your career. Both within or outside academia.

Category 1 and 2 workshops are specifically designed for all UU PhD-candidates. You are also welcome if you have recently obtained your PhD. The workshops in category 3 are for PhD's as well as all third-year undergraduate, graduate and recent graduates. New dates are published quarterly.

Our no-show policy

We are happy to offer workshops for free to all Utrecht University students. However: free of charge does not mean free of responsibility. Our activities tend to be fully booked well in advance. For every late cancellation or no-show we have had to disappoint others who would have liked to attend. This is how we work:

  • Once you have signed up for a workshop, we expect you to attend;

  • If you need to cancel your registration, do so at the earliest possible moment, at least 24 hours before the workshop;

  • Not showing up without notice will mean you cannot participate in any Career Services activity for 8 weeks. Two no-shows mean you cannot participate for the remainder of the academic year;

  • When partner organizations or companies are involved, they will be informed of you not showing up without notice.

Development and Wellbeing

Are you curious what the possibilties are when it comes to development on both academic and personal levels? The University of Utrecht offers many different activities and services in relation to coaching and the development and wellbeing of students. We organize training sessions, study groups and give personal advice. In addition, you can also make an appointment with one of the coaches or fellow students to talk about your development and/or wellbeing.
