The School of Psychology, Sociology and Criminology invites you to a new Summer School which offers an opportunity to enrich your skills and tackle the principles of qualitative research in a practical, hands-on way.

Day-long workshops will bring together academics and professionals covering the whole span of the research process from design through to writing up. Workshop content will include (please see attached full programme):

  • particular approaches to qualitative analysis (such as Thematic Analysis, IPA and Grounded Theory Approaches, Narrative Analysis and Discourse Analysis)
  • research with particular groups (such as children and vulnerable groups)
  • research in applied settings (evaluation studies and market research)
  • research that uses developing technological possibilities (doing qualitative research online and using NVivo software).

Keynote speakers will provide insights into the past, present and future of qualitative research and advice on getting published.

You can also get expert advice on your current and future research through our Consultation Clinics, and have plenty of opportunities to share experiences and network with like-minded peers.

The Summer School is suitable for; novice and experienced researchers, postgraduate students in psychology, social sciences, health and other related disciplines and professional practitioners.
