Tips & Tricks for entering (and surviving) into the academic world in Political Science and Sociology

These courses are aimed to provide instrumental and transversal skills to PhD students in order to strengthen the development of their professional and academic careers and the transition to the job market. The methodology combines lectures and workshops from specialists and advanced researchers with more dynamic and participatory formats as well as individual and group exercises.

The technical coordination is assumed by the ICPS with the participation of UAB, UB and UPF. The number of places are LIMITED (around 10 students) with special priority to students in more advance stage in the PhD programme.


Courses in previous editions included: Publish or Perish! Skills for academic publishing; Getting serious about the future: EU funded project and post-doctoral fellowships; Simulating a job interview in front of a hiring committee.



Course withdrawal

Students who wish to withdraw their participation to an enrolled course before its starting date must duly notify to the ICPS. Their place will subsequently be allocated to the next participant on the waiting list.

Participants must inform of their course withdrawal by sending an e-mail up to two days prior to the beginning of the course.



Students who do not show up in an enrolled course, or who drop out a course before completing 50% of its sessions will be automatically placed at the end of the waiting list for future courses.

Attendance certificate will be provided to those students completing a minimum of 80% of classes.
