Research training for tomorrow's world
2022 sees the global community facing significant challenges — politically, economically, socially and environmentally. It’s a world that’s fraught with uncertainty, but it’s also a future that will rely on the expertise of academics and professionals in political science to help navigate the road ahead. In July 2022, the School of Politics and IR will host a fully online summer school in Political Analysis.

- Each course (5 half-day sessions 9.00am to 11.30am) costs $750AUD.
Teaching quant with R
R is a free and increasingly common statistical computing tool for political science researchers. Unless stated otherwise, quantitative courses in our summer school are taught using R. Keeping our course stack within R eliminates unnecessary cost in training and equipping students, while at the same time streamlining course progression.
