The Oxford Spring School in Advanced Research Methods offers graduate students and researchers from universities across the UK and abroad a unique venue to learn cutting-edge methods in quantitative and qualitative methods in the social sciences, with a variety of advanced courses which place the different data analysis techniques within broader disciplinary trends towards mixed-methods research designs.
We are delighted to be able to offer five full bursaries and six half bursaries. Offers will be made on merit.
Course options include a choice between sets of increasingly popular and influential methods/techniques in the discipline:
· Social Network Analysis
· Causal Inference
Other options will be:
· Process Tracing
· Spatial Analysis
· Data Visualisation
Participants will be able to take a total of up to three different methods courses in one week, as well as a masterclass session on how to publish their research in peer-reviewed journals. Tutors will emphasise the mixed-methods philosophy underlying these courses, and the use of these techniques in different types of research designs.
