1. Three day seminars

Three days seminars are held twice a year off the TUL campus, usually in April and November. They are primarily intended for first-year PhD students, but upper-year students may also attend. A student can attend an off-site seminar only once.

The seminars focus on ethical issues in scientific work, practical skills in writing scientific documents and publications, research, the publication process and the issue of choosing the appropriate journal according to the focus of the work.

Next date: 8 – 10 November 2023
