Courses offered at the Graduate School

The graduate school organizes general and introductory courses common to all doctoral students. Students can choose the courses best fitting for them together with their supervisors. The language of the courses is either Finnish or English.

Registration to Graduate School courses is done in WebOodi. Timetables for courses are found in Lukkari by choosing "DOC Graduate School" as your group. For WebOodi and Lukkari you need university's user account and password. You'll get those from HelpDesk  helpdesk(at)uva.fi or 029 449 8051

For business studies, joint doctoral programmes have been established between the different units of business studies. These national graduate schools also provides courses for doctoral students.
