3-Day Course: Date and delivery method TBC

Register interest

The aim of this three-day course is to provide participants with an introduction to applied statistics from a beginner level. The content will provide an overview of common statistical ideas and approaches, and by the end of the course you should be able to identify which statistical test is the most applicable for a given scenario, and interpret the results.  The course will be interactive and practical, with delivery of sessions based on lectures and 'pen and paper' exercises.

Who will benefit from the course?

The course is suitable for anyone who wants to develop or refresh their statistical knowledge. This could be individuals working in a variety of research fields or stages, clinicians who want to develop their understanding (e.g. for critiquing journal articles), or students who are going to require statistical knowledge to complete their studies.
