Connect to the course registration platform from the links on the Graduate Campus Workshop pages, using your UNIL login to access the platform.
From the main Courses page, click on "Register" on the far right column for the workshop you want to attend. You will receive an immediate receipt by email to say that your request has been received. We will process your request as quickly as possible and email you to confirm your registration or to let you know you are on the waiting list.
It depends on how many registered participants cancel, how long the waiting list is, and where you are on the list. You can check with us at any time to see where you are on the list (by email).
As soon as we receive a cancellation, and if you name is next on the list, we will contact you. We strongly encourage you to pencil the date in your calendar: if we do manage to offer you a place, it would be a pity to have to turn it down!
Yes! Waiting lists are always in operation for every workshop. If you let us know you’d like to attend (by requesting registration), we’ll be able to contact you if we have a cancellation. The waiting lists are also a great way for us to know the hidden demand for a workshop. If we have sufficient budget and the trainer is available, we will try to organise an additional date.
Finally, even if we don't manage to organize an additional date, the length of the waiting list will allow us to better define our offer the following year.
The Graduate Campus is unable to award ECTS credits directly. Nevertheless, your faculty can review your participation in a Graduate Campus activity and decide whether and how to award credits.
For all of the full-day Graduate Campus workshops, we provide certificates of attendance which indicate the number of contact hours. In addition, doctoral candidates and postdocs have access to a record of all activities on their account, along with the number of hours involved.
Only you can register for a workshop, through your UNIL account (username and password) to access the platform. A third party should not register on your behalf.
The modules are there mainly to organize the offer. For the modules "Thesis from A to Z" and "Strengthen your skills", you have free choice of whatever workshop you would like to attend.
For the module "Develop your career", you are strongly recommended to sign up for a Career Café first. It addresses the essentials, in whatever direction you intend to take - academic or not - covering the basics of career possibilities, identifying what you could do and what you’d be interested in doing. After that, you are free to choose the topic you'd like to focus on.
We do of course ask that you read carefully the description for each workshop - some require time outside the workshop hours, some previous knowledge, or may not be exactly what you might have expected from a quick read of the title. Participants have been frustrated, but only because they were expecting something else.
The Graduate Campus organises some workshops in priority for postdocs, whether for topic, or because the CUSO transversal skills program has a similar offer (to which PhD candidates have access). If you are a PhD candidate interested in a workshop that is marked as priority for postdocs, you can request registration and we will put you on the waiting list.
No. The Graduate Campus workshops are provided by UNIL for its doctoral candidates and postdocs.
In return, we ask that you play your part! Our activities are often over-subscribed, and for every participant who doesn’t show up as expected, someone else hasn’t had the opportunity to attend. Please make sure you block the day and time for the workshop, and if you see that you are no longer able to participate, let us know well in advance so we can cancel your registration and find someone else to take your place!
