Opportunities for postgraduates

There are a number of new Q-Step postgraduate opportunities from September 2019! In the 2019/20 academic year we launch our new MSc in Social Research with Quantitative Methods.

Edinburgh Q-Step centre also offers three fully-funded PhD studentships through the Scottish Graduate School for Social Sciences on the topics of frailty in later life, children’s food trajectories, and teaching practices.

We offer a comprehensive and increasing set of courses in advanced quantitative methods that are available to MSc and PhD students. 

If you decide to study for a PhD with us, you will be part of a research active quantitative methods community, which meets regularly through our seminar series to discuss work in progress in a friendly and supportive environment. There are also opportunities for PhD students to get involved in tutoring and research consultancy work.
