European Doctoral School of Demography

The European Doctoral School 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. Many of the school’s courses concentrate on strengthening the quantitative and programming skills of the students. The current location of the school is Paris, France.

Learning from the best researchers in our field and being in this network is priceless. EDSD gave me the opportunity to live and study in a city of my dreams. With this program, I now know better what I want to do in the future.

Through the EDSD, I have not only been able to establish myself as an aspiring demographer, but was also able to create a network of peers who will be the future faces of demography.
