About

The Advanced Quantitative Methods programme from University of Bristol is for social scientists who wish to learn advanced quantitative methods for secondary-data analysis, and apply these methods appropriately to answer particular substantive questions from their disciplines. 

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The Advanced Quantitative Methods programme from University of Bristol  includes social scientists who are interested in interdisciplinary research that requires the application of quantitative methods from one discipline to problems in another.

This pathway is also for statistically trained researchers whose interests are more methodological. Projects may involve applying statistical methods used in other disciplines to social science problems, or developing novel statistical methods for analysing social science data. We welcome applications from students with backgrounds in statistics or related disciplines.

You will normally be registered in the school of your first supervisor. This may not be the school that processes your application.

Careers

Our students go on to employment in a wide variety of areas - often where statistical analysis is required, but also where numeracy is crucial. Students also continue within academic careers, going on to post-doctoral and lecturing positions.

At its core, the programme establishes a sound research training base, together with a set of bespoke training courses that provide students with the advanced quantitative toolkit required for their PhD research. It also provides a foundation for different types of employment, including research, policy and intervention implementation.

Programme Structure
