Testimonials: Research Methods, Data Science, and Mathematics

Students reflect on their experience gaining valuable skills and tools as used by top researchers in their fields.

I’ve been really impressed with the programme... I’ve walked away with at least a dozen really practical tools to use, and some great networks that I think will be really lasting

ME306: Real Analysis

"When I was looking for a way to advance my learning and to further develop my skill set, then LSE was really at the top of my list. I have found the quality of the instruction to be really superb. What LSE offers, is the opportunity to immerse yourself into the content with likeminded individuals for a very short period of time… It is something that I’ll take forward and would highly recommend for anyone else considering it".

ME305: Qualitative Research Methods

"I applied for the Methods Summer Programme because I am soon going to be doing my masters thesis, and I wanted to refresh my skills and gain some new tools. The practical side of the course helped me see areas that I hadn’t seen before, and taught me how to do it in the future. The programme was everything that I had hoped for! I particularly enjoyed the practical element of the course, which included carrying out observations and focus groups".

ME306: Real Analysis

"It is intensive and challenging, but not to an extent that it is unmanageable. It really challenges you and I think that is a good thing… The teaching is of very high quality in general, most importantly because they teach in a very clear, concise manner…all the teachers are friendly and helpful and you never feel intimidated to ask questions".

"I wanted some theoretical background for the practical research questions that we are dealing with in the Ministry. Some colleagues came here last year, so I heard some good feedback, and my boss said to me that I should come, as it will be helpful for me and for my work. It is great that I have been able to see the mathematics and theory behind the models that we have been using in the Ministry".

"The teaching staff on the programme are very easy to relate to and they are always open to questions. This course has provided me with a great summer in London, plus a lot of learning.

"The summer programme for me has been a great and intense learning experience. The pace and content of the course has been demanding, but all of the participants were extremely motivated, and there was a high degree of interaction between the teachers and the participants. I would definitely recommend the programme".
