All Pathways Advanced Quantitative Methods (AQM) Training
Date and Time: Tuesday 22 January 2018, 12.30pm – 4.00pm
Location: The Diamond Building, University of Sheffield
The ESRC White Rose DTP is delighted to invite you to an Advanced Quantitative Methods Taster Event, hosted and chaired by Professor Gwilym Pryce.
The aim of this training event is to provide doctoral researchers with an introduction to a range of advanced quantitative methods and analytical techniques that are commonly used in social science. It will give participants the opportunity to identify methods relevant to their own research.
