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 Monday 18 June to Saturday 30 June 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.

  • Online registration for the course is now open.

  • If you are interested, you can come and hear more about the course at our information event at 13.00 on Wednesday 21 March, Room 329 on the third floor, Cornwallis East
