Ongoing courses

Here you will find information about ongoing courses on ageing and health provided by SWEAH.

Societal Communication and Impact of Research on Ageing and Health, 3 credits.


When we do ageing research, we often present our research to an interdisciplinary audience and to practitioners. Thus, the target group is wide. In this course you will learn to reach out with your research and present the research in a media of your choice that you can use in the future, for example a book chapter, poster, or a film. 

The course is included in the SWEAH Core Curriculum, why priority is given to PhD students affiliated with SWEAH. Subject to availability, this course is also open for other PhD students within the field of ageing and health.

In English and as a distance learning
The course will be held in English and implemented as a distance learning course using the online learning platform Blackboard and one face-to-face workshop located in Örebro (see below).
