Quant GROUP Summer School

The Quantitative Group Research Opportunity for Undergraduate Projects (GROUP) Summer School is a two-week residential course which runs every year, providing an introduction to quantitative methods for the social sciences. It is a pre-requisite for those wishing to transfer to a “with Quantitative Research” minor degree.

Employers in many sectors seek graduates with quantitative skills; this course offers a unique opportunity to boost your employability. The course is a 5-credit module, and it will appear on your transcripts making you very competitive on the job market.

This is a fun and challenging course. You will be working intensively alongside other students from a range of disciplines to complete a real piece of social scientific research on this year’s topic, which is race, ethnicity, and discrimination.


  • The course will run for two weeks from Monday 18 June to Saturday 30 June 2018.

  • The course has an official price-tag of £1,500 but University of Kent students are eligible for a bursary which makes the entire course (including the accommodation) free.

  • Online registration for the course is now open.

  • Any questions, please email Dr Robert de Vries (R.DeVries@kent.ac.uk).
