Research Methods and Statistics
The programme group Research Methods and Statistics is one out of six programme groups within the Institute of Education and Child Studies. The courses taught by the group members are spread across the entire programme, and form the methodological basis for all bachelor's and master's specialisations within the institute.
In addition, the group coordinates the Master Thesis Lab, which is a facility for all master students within the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences. It offers students a quiet work place, where they can write their master’s thesis, and ask for (statistical) advice.
In addition, members of the group are associated with research teams working on a large variety of substantive and technical projects. This intensive collaboration with other programme groups gives the group its central role within the institute.
