SINGS - Swedish INterdisciplinary Graduate School in register-based research

The subject area is “register-based research”, which covers all quantitative scientific disciplines that use registers in research, such as epidemiology, public health, sociology, demography, psychology, statistics, health economics, and other medical and social sciences.

The programme consists of core and elective courses, and focus on methodological, practical, ethical and legal aspects of utilising register data for research purposes, preparing for a scientific career in the area of register-based research. The graduate school is a complement to mandatory courses required at the university where the student is registered. The programme includes a minimum of 12 credits.

The target group is doctoral students involved in register-based research within their research training and eligible applicants are doctoral students and future doctoral students at a Swedish university. The school runs in 2-year cycles and students admitted biannually.
