On April 3rd the Graduate School will launch the first e-module on 'PhD information skills'. The e-module is part of the Graduate School’s ambition to enhance its courses with compact e-learning packages. This is especially to service international PhD candidates.

Together with the university library, the Erasmus Graduate School of Social Sciences and the Humanities (EGSH) recently developed a so-called e-module. This online portal includes training modules in information skills for (starting) PhD candidates, about improving research design, optimising literature search techniques and dealing with research data management plans.
