Content

The Doctoral School of the University of Tampere organises instruction to complement the instruction offered by the doctoral programmes. The joint doctoral studies form a smorgasbord that meets the competence needs of doctoral students in various ways and enables the students to choose courses that are best suited to their personal study plans. The courses and other events organised by the Doctoral School are open to all doctoral students in all the doctoral programmes organised by the Schools and some courses are open to all researchers at the University. Instruction is offered in both Finnish and English, which supports the studies of international doctoral students.
The joint doctoral studies organised by the Doctoral School bring together doctoral students from several fields of study, which helps to develop multidisciplinary working skills and promotes peer learning and peer supervision.
The courses are designed so that they suit the different phases of doctoral studies.
The courses on offer each year are designed in cooperation with the doctoral programmes in order to meet the guidelines made by the University’s Research Council. The curriculum consists of core courses that are offered in Finnish and English and repeated in alternate semesters. The curriculum contains courses with varying topics, which aim to develop the skills needed in research work and working life, as well as courses that deal with methodology
