Now in its third year, the Methods Summer Programme offers a range of courses in quantitative and qualitative methods to enhance participants’ research capabilities. This make the programme ideally suited for students, particularly postgraduates, as well as academics and professionals.
After launching in 2012 with three courses and 66 students, the programme doubled in 2013, with 150 students from 43 countries attending five courses in social science research methods, econometrics, statistics and mathematics. The programme drew participants from a wide range of backgrounds, as shown below. The heterogeneous nature of the participants brought an exciting mix of opinions to class discussions.
In 2014 we have further expanded the programme, adding seven new one-week courses in economics, research methods and statistics. All courses provide training in research methods as used by the top researchers in the field, and are taught by world-class LSE academics.
By providing courses of high academic calibre, we offer students the intellectual space to utilise what they learn so that it can be applied to their chosen field. The LSE Methods Summer Programme will motivate, inspire and challenge you.
