How to apply

To be eligible for admission, applicants should hold a Master's degree in demography, mathematics, statistics, public health, economics, sociology, geography, biology, computer science, history, or a related field. Master's students may also apply, but they must have completed their degree and possess the official title before the start of the program. At the time of application, students may or may not be enrolled in a PhD program. Enrollment in a PhD program at one of the participating institutes is not required. Participants who are not enrolled in a PhD program are expected to enroll in one during or after the EDSD program.

Curious minds with a deep interest in demography and population development, whether of humans or species, and a proven competence in English are ideal candidates for the program. European Union citizens must have a valid European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) for the duration of the program. Non-EU citizens selected for the program must apply for a student visa at the French embassy in their home country.

The call for applications for the 2023-2024 cohort is closed.
