Qualitative interviews from access to thematic analysis

This training is open to all ESRC and non-ESRC funded PhD and MA Social Research students within the WRDTP’s seven partner universities. PGRs from all seven interdisciplinary Pathways are welcome to attend.

The journey of conducting qualitative research is an exciting one- from finalising the research design to accessing the respondents to data analysis.  This session is going to introduce some practical tips of how to access the respondents, conduct qualitative interviews and then process and analyse the data
