Virtual Summer School

Tackle your research with confidence

2 – 20 August 2021
We have a handful of spots still remaining! View available courses here. Registration closes Wednesday 14 July, midnight BST.

We’re delighted to announce that our next Summer School will be held virtually, from 2 – 20 August 2021, in association with KU Leuven.

Offering a comprehensive virtual programme of courses on variance-based, case-based and interpretive methods and techniques, our Virtual Methods School allows you to select and combine courses to meet the demands of your project. The result? A rounded training experience giving you the tools you need need to tackle your research with confidence.

How it works

  • A three-week programme
  • 29 cutting-edge courses, perfectly tailored to suit the digital environment
  • 10+ hours of live class per course, plus pre-recorded content, readings, social spaces and more

What to expect

Courses are limited in capacity and may sell out fast, so make sure to book your seat early! 

  • Top-tier pedagogy from our handpicked Instructors
  • Mixture of formats designed to maximise your learning experience
  • Pre-recorded content gives you flexibility and convenience to learn at your own pace
  • Smaller class sizes for enhanced 1-2-1 interaction with your Instructor and Teaching Assistants
  • Opportunity to share your specific research dilemma with fellow participants and get feedback
  • Exciting social events and a plenary programme, including lunchtime debates and academic networking sessions
  • If you work or study at an ECPR full member institution, you could get funding to help you attend the Virtual Winter School. Funding applications are now closed.
  • If you applied for funding, you have to register but must not pay until you've heard about the outcome of your application.
  • Earn credits and gain certification, just like you would at a face-to-face Methods School

All courses are of the same duration and price. You can take up to three courses during the Virtual Summer School – a maximum of one course in each week.

Please remember that your space is not secured until your registration is paid in full. Course fee payment is now due immediately upon registration.

  • ECPR Member: £465 per course
  • Non-member: £875 per course

Final registration deadline Wednesday 14 July, midnight BST.
