Guidance and training

More detailed guidance for University staff on data protection is published:

Data protection training for University staff is available:

An interdisciplinary programme providing research methods training to University of Cambridge staff and postgraduate students at MPhil and PhD level. Our courses cover qualitative, and quantitative research methods, from basic training to advanced statistical analysis.​

  • Basic Statistics
  • Specialist Statistics
  • Introductions to Statistical Software Packages
  • Elements of Social Science Research

A selection of our courses are also available to external participants.

We would like to remind you of the support and care around wellbeing that you can find within the University during this difficult time when we are all required to distance ourselves socially. Your supervisor and Department are your primary source for duty of care but there are many other services and websites that can be of help too. In particular, the University's Student Wellbeing website is extremely helpful.
