Our hybrid Oxford Spring School in Advanced Research Methods offers graduate students and researchers from universities across the UK and abroad a unique opportunity to learn cutting-edge methods in Social Science.

The week-long Spring School is now in its 20th year and consists of six core courses in quantitative and qualitative methods. Participants who choose to attend one of these courses will also be invited to attend additional research methodology classes along with the full Spring School cohort in the mornings.

The course options are:

  • Data Analysis for the Social Sciences, taught by Spyros Kosmidis (Oxford);
  • Causal Inference, taught by Vicente Dimis Valentim (Oxford);
  • Text Analysis, taught by Tom O’Grady (UCL);
  • Qualitative Methods, taught by Marnie Howlett (Oxford);
  • Machine Learning, taught by Andreas Murr (Warwick); and
  • Formal Theory and Models, taught by Patrick Le Bihan (Sciences Po Paris)

You can only attend one of the six core course options, as they will run alongside each other in the afternoon. Find out more about the courses here www.politics.ox.ac.uk/research-centre/spring-school/course-options.
