Additionally, delegates will be expected to have a basic understanding of common statistical tests and concepts (such as p-values and confidence intervals) as these will not be taught during this workshop (these are taught on our 5 day course – Introduction to research methods and statistics).The course will take place in a cluster room. Delegates are welcome to bring their own laptops and access to the UCL Guest network will also be provided.
