Comments from 2014, 2015 and 2016 Research Methods Courses:

Great presenters, fantastic course, very glad I attended

Excellent course that I will definitely be recommending to others. Covered huge volume of material in two days by experts in the field


An excellent course - a realistic practical approach to both designing, appraising and implementing research… a great advert for Edinburgh!

Excellent course, whether conducting research or just appraising papers

One of the most useful and applicable courses I've taken


Thoroughly enjoyed the stats - even as a mathsphobe!
