All courses will be held in the Jura/Islay computer suites at the Main Library, University of Glasgow. All courses will be a mix of lectures, tutorials and computer practicals. Course handbooks with all notes and worked examples for the practicals will be provided.
*Introductory Courses: No prior knowledge of the subject matter is required for courses running Monday-Wednesday. For students attending the Statistics course on Thursday & Friday we recommend completing An Introduction to using R with routine data as prior learning.
**Advanced Courses: All participants will be expected to have experience of using the R analysis software package, and to have a basic understanding of data management and statistics. The subject matter of specific courses may, however, be new to the participant. Concepts and theory will be introduced for these courses, in the context of using R.
