3rd Spring School on Transferable Skills
On 24 and 25 May 2023, the Spring School in Transferable Skills took place online!
The aim was to help students to develop their skills in research projects and CV writing, team management, communication and gender equality in academia and research, and how best to approach a job interview.
The third edition of the Spring School in Transferable Skills was attended by 164 students, including 45 Aurora students from Aurora universities.
The voice of the students:
Making me think about my future and who I want to be gained some confidence in how to successfully present myself at a job interview. No one explained these things before.
It is necessary to start including the content offered in this school in all the PhD programs. I find it very useful!
I gained some precious knowledge about how the academic world works, knowledge that is difficult to find elsewhere
Very interesting and inspiring. I have a better idea of how to secure funding and negotiate a position. I kindly request the organizers to consider arranging more extended sessions like this in the future
The speakers were both knowledgeable and passionate. I found the CV and interview-related session enlightening. Could attend it from the comfort of my workplace. Change my mindset towards the process of producing a scientific paper and project management!
The Spring School is offered free of charge to all students on bachelor, master and doctorate courses in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) area at Unina and the Aurora Network.
The School is organised by the Internationalisation Commission of the Department of Pharmacy in collaboration with Aurora and the University of Glasgow (UK).
The initiative was coordinated by prof. Pasquale Maffia, University of Naples Federico II/University of Glasgow (Pharmacy Internationalisation Commission Coordinator) and prof. Valeria Costantino, University of Naples Federico II (University Erasmus Delegate).
