Aim and content

This course is free of charge for PhD students at Danish universities (except Copenhagen Business School), and for PhD Students from NorDoc member universities. All other participants must pay the course fee.

Anyone can apply for the course, but if you are not a PhD student at a Danish university, you will be placed on the waiting list until enrollment deadline. This also applies to PhD students from NorDoc member universities. After the enrollment deadline, available seats will be allocated to applicants on the waiting list.

Learning objectives

A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:

1. identify relevant theories guiding research within migration and health

2. understand opportunities and challenges of qualitative research methods within the field

4. understand policy analysis within the field

The aim of this PhD course is to provide participants with an interest in migration, ethnicity and health a general introduction to theories and methods within the research field. The concepts of migration and ethnicity and their interrelationship are defined; as well as the complex causal mechanisms behind the effect of migration and ethnicity on health and access to health care. Moreover, methodological challenges including categorisation of ethnicity and the pros and cons of different study designs are addressed.
