Applied Data Analysis Workshops

The Q-Step workshops in Applied Data Analysis seek to provide additional support to students interested in Quantitative Methods for the Social Sciences. They aspire to raise interest in Applied Data Analysis amongst undergraduates and postgraduates, and embed quantitative literacy in the culture of the University.

The workshops are open to all, with priority given to Q-Step undergraduate students: Space is strictly limited to 20 places per workshop.
