Workshop in Advanced Quantitative Analysis

This information is for the 2021/22 session.


This course is available to MPhil/PhD students from across the LSE who are undertaking projects using quantitative methods. MY560 is not a traditional course but instead a series of one-off workshops. Places on individual workshops are limited and participants must register via LSE’s Training and Development System.

Course content

MY560 is a series of workshop modules on advanced topics in quantitative research methodology. These workshops assume a background in quantitative methods at least covering basic statistics, linear and logistic regression. Most of the workshops are for one day, and consist of a 2-hour lecture plus 2-hour computer class in the afternoon and early evening of the same day. While many of the workshops are part of a series on related topics, each workshop is self-contained, and can be attended without attending any other workshops.


Sessions to be held in term time throughout the year; participants are required to sign up via LSE’s Training and Development System.


This course is non-examinable.
