Year one

Exclusive seminar series

In the first year, particular emphasis is given to Lund University and LTH awareness, various career pathways, teamwork, communication and leadership. The format is based on monthly one-day standalone sessions with inspirational guest speakers, and a start-up and closing two-day overnight seminar. This comprehensive one-year curriculum will enable participants to expand their network and develop their academic career plans. Whatever those plans are, participants will benefit significantly from their first year in LTH Career Academy.

  • Formation of networks for professional development, encouragement and fun
  • Identifying career pathways
  • Accelerating career development
  • Advancing your pedagogical skills
  • Advancing your leadership skills
