Professional development courses

While working on their thesis, all PhD students enrolled in one of the 17 Doctoral Schools of the Université de Lyon benefit from both doctoral and professional development courses appropriate for their career plan. Modules include field-specific, scientific courses validated by or carried out within the Doctoral Schools, and a wide variety of professional development courses offered to all PhD students attending the Université de Lyon.

These modules are invaluable for the PhD students' future integration into the world of work. The training course catalog offers PhD students some fifty modules from which to choose, provided they have been approved by both the director of their Doctoral School and their thesis supervisor.

The  catalog provides a wide variety of courses: developing the entrepreneurial spirit, protection of intellectual property, job-search skills, scientific communication, project management, teamwork, corporate knowledge, knowledge management and corporate culture, etc.
