We invite students (Ph.D and M.A) to participate in the 8th Summer School of Tallinn & Tartu University. This is the first co-operational event organized and coordinated by both of these universities. Our primary goal is to develop international co-operation between Nordic and Baltic Ph.D and M.A students. The topic will focus on the scientific view of social work and current issues in social policy. The course includes lectures, seminars, field visits and options for participating in cultural events.
The objective of the summer school course is to support international collaboration in the field of social work and social policy studies, research and development. By inviting speakers and students from partner universities, we will create the opportunity to gain and exchange valuable international experience — an essential tool for the contemporary student of social work, and researcher respectively.
Students, who present a short paper, receive 4.0 ECTS, while students who present an accepted full paper, receive the maximum of 7.5 ECTS (both include five working days). Each day will contain a mixture of keynote presentations related to the overall- and/or the sub-theme and workshops where the PhD students/MA students present and discuss their work under the guidance of experienced researchers/keynote speakers.
The summer school includes preparation work with materials before the summer school (the Reading List will be sent no later than on June 1st by e-mail) and the required research paper is to be sent no later than on July 1st, 2013 to Koidu.Saia@tlu.ee.
