Comments from the 2014 and 2015 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
