Summer Institute 2017: UK Social Science Undergraduates
Congratulations to the students from universities from across the UK who completed the second annual Oxford Summer Institute in June 2017. Oxford Q-Step Centre offered an exciting week's programme of hands-on Quantitative Methods training to Social Science undergraduates, through a series of lectures and data-lab sessions with world-leading teachers and reasearchers. Teaching took place in the Department of Politics & International Relations, with accommodation in Lady Margaret Hall.
The Oxford Q-Step Centre is one of fifteen centres at universities in the UK which receives funding from the Nuffield Foundation, the ESRC and HEFCE to promote a step-change in quantitative social science training. The Summer Institute is one of OQC's initiatives to help bring this about. Teaching takes place at the Department of Politics and International Relations in Oxford, and accommodation is provided at Lady Margaret Hall.
