Upcoming courses and events for the students of the Doctoral Programme in Language Studies.

International Cooperation

LingNet Europe

The Doctoral Program for Language Studies at the University of Helsinki is proud to announce that it joined the prestigious LingNet Europe consortium on July 1, 2014.

The LingNet Europe consortium is administered from the Hermann Paul Centre for Linguistics (HPCL) at the Albert-Ludwigs Universität in Freiburg in Germany.

The aim of the network is to enhance mobility and research collaboration between its partner institutions on all levels from Master students (including 6-8 week internships with research groups) and PhD students via Postdocs to senior academic staff (for short-term visits or long-term research stays).

The universities involved offer possibilities for mobility from Helsinki, and to Helsinki from Antwerpen, Bern, Bozen, Freiburg, Fribourg, Leuven, Newcastle, Santiago de Compostela, Bergamo and Oslo.

For details, see the LingNet Europe home page.

Nordic Capital Universities

Co-operation with universities in the Nordic Capitals

The Doctoral program for Language studies is part of a Memorandum of Understanding that the Faculties of Arts/Humanities in the capital cities of the Nordic countries has signed. The MoU at present covers the University of Helsinki, the University of Stockholm, the University of Oslo, and the University of Copenhagen. Negotiations are under way of also including the University of Iceland.

Among other things, the MoU states that students in the participating universities can attend courses in the other universities without  having to pay course fees. The student’s home university covers these costs.
