Strike action planned between 25 November and 4 December may impact some SSRMP modules. Please click the link to read more information.

Industrial/strike action by staff of the trade union UCU is planned to be held between 25th November and 4th December 2019. If no resolution is reached to the dispute then strike action will go ahead and some SSRMP modules are likely to be affected.

Although we will ask teaching staff if they will be going on strike they are not obliged to reply or let us know if they will take action. Therefore we cannot say for sure if a particular lesson will go ahead as planned, or not. We are very sorry that SSRMP therefore cannot necessarily provide advance warning of a cancellation. However, in cases where we do know a lesson will be cancelled because of strike action then we will communicate this to affected students.

We do apologise for the uncertainty and any disruption to your studies. Although all of our staff, our colleagues in other departments, as well as the University administration, remain eager for the strike to end, the issues involved are complex and the sources of disagreement are both substantial and longstanding. More information on the industrial action can be found on the UCU website:

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.
