PhD Essentials

PhD Essentials
Crucial scholarly skills for a good start on your PhD

Starting in a PhD program can be as intimidating as exciting. In the process of working towards the PhD degree, they need to become well-versed in their literature, proficient in their methods, masters of their data and effective communicators, all at the same time. To do so, doctoral students need to develop essential scholarly skills to successfully carry out research that contributes to their respective fields. While doctoral schools support PhD students in this endeavor, the university library also offers resources and guidance in developing the kinds of skills needed across disciplines.

This course aims to introduce PhD students at Nord University to fundamental aspects of academic life and equip them with essential skills for a successful research career. The course also seeks to provide an arena in which PhD students from different fields can meet and develop fruitful peer relationships that support them throughout their PhD journeys and further in their research careers.

A certificate of participation will be provided for students who take part in at least 75% of the course.
