Currently we offer the single course in Social Research Methods. This flagship programme offers a comprehensive guide to the main issues in designing and undertaking social research. Learn about research design, data collection and analysis, validity, ethics, research governance and how to write a successful research proposal.

This course is suitable for those starting out in social research, including postgraduate students and new researchers. It also can provide a refresher for those already working with social research methods who want to swot up on the theory behind their practice.
