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 of all kinds are desperate for graduates with quantitative skills, so this course offers a unique opportunity to boost your employability. The course is the equivalent of a 15-credit module, and it will appear on your transcript when you graduate, helping you demonstrate your skills to employers.
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 the 16th of June to the 1st of July 2018.
The course has an official price-tag of £1,500 (including accommodation). However, University of Kent students can apply for a bursary to cover the entire cost.
Registration for the course will open on the 1st of March 2018.
If you are interested, you can come and hear more about the course at our information event (date and location TBC).
