We offer one-day professional courses covering different aspects of applied statistics. Courses are non-credit bearing and are designed for quick learning of the material covered.

Any course materials, including pre-reading, refreshments and lunch are included in the fee.

Entry requirements

We would expect attendees to have met statistical ideas at some point in their past, ideally to be familiar with the material covered in the pre-requisite course: Introduction to Statistics 1.

Overseas participants will be required to provide evidence of visa or residency status in the UK, before they can be fully registered and attend.



This course is a logical continuation of our Introduction to Statistics 1 course. It continues to cover the commonly used statistical tests and covers confidence intervals, the nonparametric approach to inference (e.g. the Wilcoxon test, Mann Whitney test, Kruskal Wallis test, etc) as well as exploring relationships using linear regression and missing value analysis. An overview of selecting the most appropriate statistical test is given.

We would expect attendees to have met statistical ideas at some point in their past, ideally to be familiar with the material covered in the pre-requisite course.

Our courses are designed so that you can learn how to make logical and valid conclusions from your data. Both days will focus on practical implementation of statistical techniques using SPSS, with further emphasis placed on incorporating good study design into your planning.
