All PhD candidates draw up a Training and Supervision Plan (TSP) during the first three months of their trajectory, in which they describe their planned courses and training. The RIBES TSP format can be found in the RIBES Teams environment and can be downloaded on the Radboud PhD website.
All RIBES PhDs (both internal and external) take part in the following three activities:
- Introduction morning at the Faculty of Science
- Basic Didactic Skills (or a comparable educational course)
- Scientific Ethics
The remainder of the training programme depends on previous experience, preferences and desired career after the PhD. PhD candidates can discuss their programme with their supervisors or with the graduate school coordinator.
You can view the full RIBES Graduate School programme below, which may serve as a starting point for choosing courses and training. PhD candidates who complete at least 420 hours in the Graduate School programme will receive the RIBES Graduate School certificate.
Training at other graduate/research schools
Our PhD candidates are encouraged to be active members of the scientific community and follow appropriate courses to contribute to their research project. This can also be done at other (national) research schools or graduate schools. This is supported by our institute and can be combined or integrated in the RIBES Graduate School programme.
