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.
