The Doctoral School is pleased to present the Semester one calendar for the Professional Development Programme.
Registrations to participate in the workshops will be accepted on a first-come first-served basis through the eSIMS portal, from 09:00 on Friday 17 September to midnight on Monday 27 September 2021. Late applications will not be accepted. There is no limit to the number of workshops you can select but once an application is confirmed there will be no possibility to add or change your selection.
Some workshops require that participants present some work prior to the date of the workshop. Care should be taken to follow deadlines and instructions given on the workshop description.
It is important that you register only if you are sure you are able to attend the workshops on the day and time advertised. We urge you to discuss your choice of workshops with your supervisory team before making your decision.
Effective academic and research skills are key components of a successful research process and range from research design to presentation skills, crucial for conferences and publication.
Research suggests that only 25% of doctoral students go on to work in research institutions or universities in Europe. These workshops are designed to help you learn more about your post-doctoral career options and to pitch the skills you gained as a doctoral researcher to a range of employers.
The Doctoral School has a cancellation policy whereby failure to attend more than three workshops without a valid reason for doing so will lead to not being able to attend other doctoral school workshops in the future. Valid reasons for late cancellation or for missing a workshop involve illness and unplanned leave of absence. If you are unable to attend a workshop for unforeseen and exceptional circumstances please send an email to email@example.com.
We encourage you to participate in these workshops in an active and engaged manner, being considerate of the views and feelings of other students who may hail from disciplines outside your own.
Each workshop will run if there is a sufficient number of applicants.
While no certificate will be issued for attending these workshops, a list of attended workshops will appear on your degree transcript issued by the Registrar’s Office.
Resident academics pursuing doctoral studies at universities abroad and post-doctoral researchers employed by the University of Malta will once again be able to benefit from a number of the workshops on offer through an initiative being taken in collaboration with the Office for Human Resources Management and Development.
You are encouraged to access the online programme for the timetable and a PDF copy of the catalogue for more information about the workshops.
