Over the course of this three-week programme, we’re offering our most sought-after methods courses on a wide range of qualitative and quantitative topics. Taught by experts in their fields, there's something to suit everyone. 
We’ve already had an overwhelming response from those interested to attend – you won’t want to miss out!
  • Tech tools
  • Big data
  • Case based
  • Qualitative and Interpretive
  • Statistics
With a variety of delivery formats such as live meetings, office hours and chats, you'll have plenty of interaction with your Instructor before and during the course week. 

Pedagogical excellence at your fingertips

The current pandemic has forced universities to cancel face-to-face teaching and move it rapidly online. While this may work as a stopgap, merely turning on a webcam cannot hope to achieve the same pedagogical quality.

Even before the crisis, ECPR had aimed to develop a quality Virtual Methods School. Instead of simply streaming our existing courses, we accelerated these plans to develop online courses which take advantage of the digital format to deliver high-quality PhD-level methods training. Using short, pre-recorded lectures, annotated readings, exercises, and online social spaces, along with live interaction between participants and our team of expert Instructors, we have developed a new Methods School programme that establishes an exceptional digital learning environment to ensure learning outcomes are every bit as good as those at our physical events.

You’ll get everything you’d expect from our renowned Methods School, and more

  • Top-tier pedagogy from our handpicked Instructors, global experts in their respective fields
  • Mixture of formats designed to maximise your learning experience
  • Smaller class sizes for enhanced 1-2-1 interaction with your Instructor and Teaching Assistants
  • Pre-recorded content gives you flexibility and convenience to learn at your own pace; revise, recap
  • Opportunity to share your specific research dilemma with fellow participants and get constructive feedback
  • Exciting social events tailored to your course, as well as a plenary programme
  • Earn credits, just like you would at a face-to-face Methods School
  • Gain certification

All courses are the same duration and price

  • Registration ECPR Member, per course: £465
  • Registration Non-Member, per course: £875

Registration opens Thursday 21 May. Be quick – spaces are limited, and courses are likely to sell out super-fast! Don’t forget: your place is not secure until payment is made.
