Virtual Winter School

Pedagogical excellence at your fingertips

Building on the success of our first ever Virtual Methods School this summer, which brought together 493 PhD Students and early career researchers across 26 courses, we’re delighted to announce that our 2021 Winter School will be held virtually, from 15–26 March.  

What to expect

Our renowned methods courses on a range of qualitative and quantitative techniques, carefully adapted to suit the digital environment.

With our short, pre-recorded lectures, annotated readings, exercises, and online social spaces, along with live interaction with fellow participants and our team of expert Instructors, you'll have all the tools you need to fine-tune your methods skills from the comfort of your home.

How it works

  • A two-week programme 
  • 28 one-week courses tailored to suit the digital environment
  • 10+ hours of live class per course, plus pre-recorded lectures

What you'll get

  • 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

Course fees and registration

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

In circumstances where demand exceeds the available course capacity, your registration may be cancelled and you will receive a refund.
