Feedback -

"It was a very good, practical course. Having attended other statistics courses, I found this to be the most useful, as it was able to present statistics from a non-statistician’s point of view"

"Really useful course – good pace, great handout and enthusiastic lecturers! Thanks for making medical statistics seem relatively straightforward!  Would recommend to other colleagues"

"Best statistics course ever!  Very well organised, and the faculty members explained all the topics very clearly.  I really liked the exercices, and the examples they gave us.  Very, very useful.  Thank you very much!"

"Very good. Really one of the best courses in my life."

"I would like to thank all speakers for a very comprehensive course. Although I had an idea of statistical tests, I now feel much more confident about organising/understanding/analysing studies and data"
