CoS Transferable Skills


College of Science’s Transferable Skills Programme for PhD students
At the College of Science (CoS), we believe that apart from research and intellectual skills, interpersonal skills, communication skills and other professional skills and attributes are also integral to post-graduate training.
The Transferable Skills Programme aims to impart our students skills that are relevant to both research and to career beyond their stint at NTU. Courses in this programme are offered to all graduate students from our College. This programme is compulsory for all full-time PhD students enrolled in/after August 2015.
