Drop-in

Students tackling quantitative work for the first time can run into all sorts of problems when analysing and interpreting data. Anyone in that position should think about attending one of our quantitative drop-in sessions. While you should always consult your supervisor first about questions of what to do, our tutors can help you figure out how to do what you want to do. In other words, we’re troubleshooters. If you end up needing additional help, we can also make arrangements to deal with that.

These drop-in sessions will be held on every Tuesday in July 2019 from 14:00 to 16:00 in G32, 7 George Square. At least two PhD tutors will be present at every session. No booking is required, but you do need to register once before the day(s) you plan to attend. Click here to submit your registration.

These sessions were extremely popular last year, so you may have to wait to see someone. Make sure that you bring things to work on so that you don’t waste time sitting around.

 Quantitative drop-in sessions (July/August 2018)

We will be offering drop-in sessions on experiment design and statistics to MSc students in PPLS over the summer. These are intended to help you get over problems so you can finish your dissertations.

The main topics we can help you with are experimental design, data analysis/interpretation, model fitting and software (e.g., R). Writing-related questions are welcome, but they are probably better dealt with in a separate hour-long appointment so we can give your dissertation the time it deserves (see “Appointments” on this site).

While you should always consult your supervisor first about questions of what to do, our tutors can help you figure out how to do what you want to do. In other words, we’re troubleshooters.

At least two PhD tutors will be present at every session and no booking is required.   Make sure to arrive early and bring your laptop (both for the session itself and so that you can work while you wait for a tutor).
