Methods Surgery

Term-time help with methods


The Methods Surgery drop-in sessions will be resumed in the 2021/22 academic year. More details will be provided in due course. 

The Department of Methodology offers a walk-in Methods Surgery for staff, postgraduate taught and postgraduate research students. Those with any methods-related problems can attend for advice and guidance.

Two members of staff, one with a background in quantitative methods and the other in qualitative methods, will be present at each session to help with a range of methodological problems.

It is essential to sign up on Moodle beforehand to give further details of the methods query you have and to receive the drop-in details. The Zoom meeting links will be sent by moodle announcement on the day of each session. Please read the topic (quantitative or qualitative methods surgery) of the announcement carefully before clicking on the link. 

For the 2020/21 academic year, all drop-in sessions will be held online on Zoom every Thursday from 10:00 - 11:00 and 15:00 - 16:00 (UK time).
