The Oxford Spring School welcomes committed graduate students and researchers who will benefit from our advanced training in quantitative and qualitative methods. Applications to study on our courses will be evaluated by the Spring School Director.
Because we offer courses in a variety of research skills, we expect students to arrive with a variety of backgrounds.
We seek highly motivated students who have excelled in the study of social science or related fields and who are promising social science researchers.
For students hoping to join the Causal Inference or Machine Learning courses, we require background in statistics and data analysis.
In the event of excess demand for places, we will give priority to students
- who are engaged in social science research, especially in political science or sociology
- who are currently engaged in graduate level study
- whose experience and preparation will allow them to benefit most from the course.
