Feedback -

"Really useful introduction to statistical analysis. Highlighting the importance of study design, bias and confounding factors was very helpful. I finally understand power calculations – thank you!"

"Overall: really excellent. Helpful especially now that I’m working on analysing data – so this added a lot of clarity"

"Excellent course. Pitched at the right level for introduction. Relevant to me (Core Medical Trainee junior doctor). Well explained; opportunities for questions. Interesting, engaging speakers and affordable"

"All lectures were very informative, and the lecturers were willing to have open discussion and questions, which was nice. (...) Very, very informative and extensive (for naïve people like me who don’t have prior experience with statistics and research). I will keep it with me as a reference guide for when I get an opportunity to do research"

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