'City's lecturers and administrative staff have been incredibly helpful providing valuable guidance, advice and support throughout the course.'
I chose City due to its central location and reputation for quality teaching. At the time of applying the Social Research Methods course had achieved a Gold Standard. As the course was offered on a part time basis, it allowed for flexibility to work around existing work commitments.
What do you enjoy most about your course?
The course provided a complete overview of social research methods exploring qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis. I particularly enjoyed the opportunity to study additional modules from across the School of Arts and Social Sciences which allowed me to gain substantive knowledge for carrying out my research project.
What has been your favourite module and why?
I have particularly enjoyed the quantitative modules on ‘Data Analysis with SPSS’ and ‘Statistical Modelling with STATA’. These modules provided me the opportunity to develop a strong understanding of statistical analysis using practical methods to analyse large scale data sets.
What has been a highlight of your course so far?
