Our 54th annual summer school will be held virtually for 2021.

The core Summer School consists of three two-week sessions.

Session Three: Sunday 8 August – Friday 20 August 2021
Essex Summer School in Social Science Data Analysis on social media:
After careful consideration, we have taken the decision to transfer our 2021 programme to an entirely online format. Whilst we are disappointed to be unable to hold an in person event at our Colchester campus for the second year running, we hope that our decision to transfer our programme online will enable students to plan their social science research methods training for this summer with confidence.
Courses cover various types of quantitative and qualitative research methods, research design, techniques for data collection and measurement as well as mathematics.
"The Essex Summer School in Social Science Data Analysis is a gathering of people that are all focused on how methodology of quantitative methods in the social sciences is developing and want to help guide the next generation of researchers in that journey."
