All the current and upcoming courses are listed on the Helsinki GSE web page Courses (use a filter "FDPE PhD" or "HGSE PhD" - you get the same results). Here (in the right side bar) you can find only so called "core courses". Also the PhD workshops are listed on the Helsinki GSE web page Seminars.

If you would like to get information related to PhD studies (courses, workshops etc.) and grants, job opportunities etc. , please subscribe to the FDPE mailing list by sending an informal e-mail to To unsubscribe, send an email to the same address.

You can start the courses though and register for the courses later (after receiving the IT access) in the host university's WebOodi. If you don't have IT access you may not have access to the IT platforms (Mycourses, Moodle) from where the course material can be downloaded. Please ask help for your class mates who have access to the materials.
