General

Program Description

Are you looking for a way to lift your performance and make your approach highly appreciated in any professional environment?

Transferskills 2019 (www.transferskills.be) is a two-week summer school organised at Ghent University (Belgium) from July 8 to 19, 2019, offering a toolbox of transferrable skills that determine HOW you do the job, as opposed to technical skills, determining WHAT you do.

Transferskills 2019 offers training in teamwork and motivation, meeting skills, presentation and (popular) writing skills, relational behaviour, conflict handling, cross-cultural intelligence, project management, job-seeking, CV writing and interviewing skills, research ethics, etc. The training modules will allow you to do more in less time and create a healthy and pleasant work environment.

Usable throughout your professional life, these skills will really make a difference, also on your CV when looking for a job.

The training modules are elective, so you can choose what you value most. They are complemented by social activities organised for the whole group.

Cheap accommodation facilities in the residence halls of the university are available. Directly after the summer school, the world-famous Ghent Festivities (https://gentsefeesten.stad.gent/) will welcome you in an unforgettable atmosphere!

Places are limited, so hope to see you soon!
