How it works

Our Methods School offers a great range of courses in qualitative and interpretive methods, statistics, big data and much more. Our Academic Convenors, Sebastian Koehler and Susana Salgado, expertly design the programme to suit your research needs regardless of your chosen environment to learn.


With access to pre-recorded lectures, annotated readings, exercises, and online social spaces, you'll have the flexibility and convenience to learn at your own pace.

Live teaching

All our virtual courses feature at least 3 hours of course classes / live sessions each day, ensuring quality interaction with your Instructor and fellow participants.

Handy extras

To maximise your learning experience, we've added useful features such as office hours and chats with your Instructor.

Learning Management System

With our digital environment, you'll have everything you need for a stress-free learning experience at your fingertips.

Good to know  

Your space is not secured until your registration is paid in full.

  • Depending on the course, the maximum capacity is 12 to 18 participants.
  • If the course you would like to attend is fully booked, this will be displayed in the course list and you will be unable to add it to your basket.
  • We may offer a repeat course for fully booked courses, subject to demand.
  • In circumstances where demand for a course is insufficient or exceeds the available capacity, your registration may be cancelled and you will receive a refund.

Confirmed courses

Courses are confirmed when they reach a predetermined number of paid participants. The earlier you pay, the earlier a course is likely to be confirmed.

If a course does not meet the predetermined number of participants, it might be cancelled. If this happens, we will offer you a place on another course of your choice, or a full refund.

All courses will be confirmed or cancelled by 15 December 2023. Please check the homepage regularly for essential event updates.

Combining courses

  • You may choose to take any course on its own or combine it with other courses.
  • You can take up to two courses at the Winter School - a maximum of one morning and one afternoon course.
  • Need help with selecting your courses? Get in touch with our Events Team.
If you are considering combining courses, please be aware that this will entail a heavier workload. All courses will require additional work on top of the teaching hours. Before you book, please read the course outlines thoroughly and make sure you are confident you can cope with the schedule.
