September 2022 - October 2022

Course content

The focus of the course is that the doctoral student will increase their knowledge in suicidology as a research topic. It is an advantage (but not an obligation) if the doctoral student has a dissertation project that concerns suicide in some aspect. The course also includes practical application of suicide risk assessment. The goal is for the doctoral student, based on previous research, to acquire knowledge of theories and methods in the current research area. The course will also provide an opportunity to reason together about ethical approach and other issues that may arise during research studies in the field of suicide.

Course information

The course is given once a year if there are a sufficient number of qualified applicants.

During the course, the doctoral student writes a short individual assignment, gives an oral presentation of this assignment and opposes to someone else's presentation. The content of the assignment should, as far as possible, be useful in the doctoral student's dissertation project, for example as a part of a study introduction or the dissertation text.

Admission requirements

To gain access to the course and complete the examinations included in the course, the applicant must be admitted to a doctoral programme.


The application to autumn 2022 is now closed.
