European Doctoral School of Demography

The European Doctoral School of Demography (EDSD) invites applications for school year 2021-2022.

Deadline for applications: April 15, 2021

The EDSD is an eleven-month sponsored program that is offered every year aiming to provide students with an appropriate high-level education in demography to pursue their doctoral studies. Students will acquire a solid knowledge base on the causes and consequences of demographic change, population data, statistical and mathematical demography, as well as modeling, simulation, and forecasting. The School’s courses are structured in such a way that the students work on the precise formulation of a thesis topic and early steps of their dissertations. Many of the School’s courses concentrate on strengthening the quantitative and programming skills of the students. The language of the School is English.

In the 2021/22 academic year, the School will be held at two different locations. The preparatory courses (from early September to late October 2021) will be offered by the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research in Rostock, Germany. The core courses (from November until the end of July 2022) will be held at the Centre for Demographic Studies (Centre d’Estudis Demogràfics – CED) at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

European Master’s Degree in Demography

Upon successful completion of the program and presentation of a thesis, the students enrolled in the EDSD will receive an official European Master in Demography from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
