Advanced Quantitative Methods (AQM) Taster Day

The White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership held the annual Advanced Quantitative Methods Taster Event, chaired by Professor Gwilym Pryce on 23 January 2018 at the University of Sheffield.

The aim of this event was to provide an introduction to a range of advanced quantitative methods and analytical techniques that are commonly used in social science. It gave participants the opportunity to identify methods relevant to their own research.

Fifty doctoral researchers attended from the White Rose DTP Universities of Bradford, Hull, Leeds, Manchester Metropolitan, Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam and York.
