The European Doctoral School of Demography (EDSD)/school year 2018/19

The European Doctoral School of Demography (EDSD) invites applications for school year 2018-19.

The EDSD is an eleven-month program that is offered every year aiming to provide students in the first year of their doctoral studies with an appropriate high-level education in demography. The School’s courses are structured in such a way that the students work on precise formulation of a thesis topic and early steps of their dissertations. The language of the School is English.

In the 2018-9 school year the School will be held at two different locations. The preparatory courses (from early September to mid-October 2018) will be offered at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research in Rostock, Germany.  The core courses (from mid-October 2018 until end of July 2019) will be held at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense, Denmark.

The EDSD does not charge fees. Several European research institutes and universities provide full fellowships for all students accepted into the School.
