The blog: Ask questions about the NCT

Laurent Cousin

Specialists answer your questions about this course that enables PhD candidates to enhance their skills.

Throughout the month of September on the Docteurs&Co blog, Evelyne Jardin invites you to ask questions about the "New Chapter in the Thesis" (NCT), a skill enhancement program for PhD candidates in their final year of study, to help them promote their abilities.

A mentor specialized in Human Resources who helps doctoral students better promote their skills after finishing their degree, and a local organizer (the one who coordinates your doctoral school’s curriculum) will answer bloggers’ questions.

And if you don’t know about this course, read the following articles:
