Well organized, affordable courses for scientists Despite tremendous amounts of online courses on internet, those focusing on academic careers for scientists are not many. Upskill’s well-organized courses (and affordable!) are exactly for the people who want to boost their abilities for engaging public benefits via science.
Optometrist and PhD Candidate, South Africa
I thought I knew how to write until I subscribed The classes were so helpful, and it was only then I understood why I didn't pass in the first place. I appreciated that I could back and look at the recordings in case I didn't understand something.
Doctor, Lagos State University Teaching Hospital
My proficiency in manuscript writing improved so much I had beautiful ideas in my head but lacked the capability of effectively transcribing them into writing. I subscribed to the manuscript writing course. By the time I received the last mail, I realised my proficiency in manuscript writing has improved so much.
