Development of Complementary Skills
The quality of subject-specific training is essential in graduate research studies, but despite the quality of training received, it does not include professional complementary skills and cannot ensure that acquired knowledge is transferred efficiently into a work situation.
More than ever, universities are offering activities to develop soft skills or cross‑curricular competencies. Some offer workshops for developing skills related to the “student profession”, while others focus on offering conferences on research methodology or the skills to acquire to facilitate entry into the working world.
At the Université de Sherbrooke, we provide our students with a number of services so they can tap into their full potential, from preparing for studies to entering the workforce.
