Important to know before you register for the Postdoc Talent Management workshops

Postdocs are allowed to register for 1 themed course per semester. You are entitled to follow another course the following semester.

All courses are free of charge, but not for Ghent University! Registration involves a commitment and professional attitude:

  • You subscribe for all sessions of a course. Workshops cannot be taken separately.
  • Late cancellations or not showing up may limit your chances of attending other courses in the future.

All courses are in English. In case all participants are native Dutch-speaking, the course will be in Dutch.
