About the courses


Our Methods School delivers a broad variety of courses that cater for the needs of researchers in political science and neighbouring disciplines. The Winter School offers three complementary course types, providing a comprehensive tuition package. An intensive refresher course is available at the Summer School only.

The Winter School starts with Short, two-day Preparatory Courses held 2–3 March, followed by four different categories of Main or Master Course, each lasting five days, from 5–9 March.

You can take any course on its own or choose one of the five package options below

Are you are considering package 4 or 5? Please be aware that they entail a heavy workload.

Most Main courses require additional work on top of the three classroom hours each day.

Before you book, please read the course outlines thoroughly and make sure you are confident you can cope with the schedule!

 

Short Preparatory Courses (7.5 hours over two days)

Friday 2 March
13:00–15:00 and 15:30–17:00
Saturday 3 March
A - 09:00-10:30 / 11:00-12:00 and 13:00-14:30
B - 11:00–12:00 / 13:00-14:30 and 15:00–16:30

These courses offer a quick introduction, or refresher, to tools that will be useful for further courses. Typically, they are software training in preparation for a data analysis course.

 

Main courses AM or PM (3 hours a day) and Master courses (5 hours a day)

Monday 5 – Friday 9 March 2018

You cannot take a Main course with a Master course but you can take two Main courses, AM + PM.

If you want to take two Main courses, AM + PM, please read the course outlines thoroughly. Most Main courses require additional work outside of the standard classes of three hours a day.

There are four types of Main or Master course:

Research design/fundamentals An ‘upstream’ course enabling you to think about your research more broadly, so you can make informed choices about specific methods/techniques

Data collection/generation A hands-on course focused on a specific method (or family of methods) for data collection or generation

Data analysis (introductory) A hands-on course focused on a specific method (or family of methods) for data analysis, bringing you to a level of well-informed use

Data analysis (advanced) A hands-on course focused on a specific method (or family of methods) for data analysis, bringing you to an expert level, including more recent refinements.
