EPFL-EDNE courses: LNDS PhD students can basically attend most courses of the EPFL PhD program in neuroscience (EDNE). To inquire about free spots in classes, please first write to the EDNE coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org) from your work mail address (with the LN coordinator in copy). You will then receive a link towards the online registration platform of EPFL (have a scan of your PhD student card ready to attach if needed). Participation to EPFL courses is free for LNDS candidates.
Once you successfully finished a course, please send the EPFL credit transcript to the LNDS coordinator for credit validation.
Other EPFL PhD courses: Please contact the LNDS coordinator to ask for credit validation before choosing a given course, and to be re-directed to the EPFL program coordinator in charge. If your wish can be granted, please fill the “external auditor form” and send it to “email@example.com” together with a scan of your PhD student card.
The CUSO (Conférence universitaire de Suisse occidentale) offers a range of courses on research-related soft skills (e.g. scientific writing). Moreover, several doctoral programs provide courses on statistics, research and analysis methods, for example:
Each LNDS student can participate to these courses, but you need to create a CUSO login for registration. Please provide the LNDS coordinator with your course certificate and a course link for credit validation.
