Research Methods in Behavioural Sciences Summer School

More and more researchers in behavioural sciences want to learn how to get the best from their data. The Liverpool Hope University Summer School in Research Methods in Behavioural Sciences provides participants with a unique opportunity to better understand both basic and advanced, state-of-the-art methodological techniques to analyse their data. The Summer School covers both qualitative (e.g., IPA analysis) and quantitative (e.g., Bayesian data analysis) aspects of the research in behavioural science and each course is taught by experienced instructors. Furthermore, the Liverpool Hope University Summer School in Research Methods in Behavioural Sciences has a strong applied focus that allows the participants to directly "touch" and learn those techniques that will become essential components of their methodological toolbox and will help them understand what stories their data really have to tell.  

The Summer School will be taking place from Monday 10th July until Wednesday 13th July 2017. For more information please download our Research Methods Summer School Programme.
