The annual ECPR Summer School on Methods and Techniques — hosted by the University of Ljubljana — will take place from July 24 to August 9, 2014. The Summer Schools offers intermediate level programmes covering the qualitative and quantitative spectrum. In addition, computer software classes are held prior to the main courses so that students have ample time to get up to speed. A diverse range of experienced Instructors supported by dedicated Teaching Assistants will guide and support you throughout the School.
The main courses consist of either five or ten teaching days (one week or two week courses) and three hours’ teaching is scheduled for each day. Participants also receive 3/4 hours’ additional reading and supplementary practical work each day. Refresher courses of three six-hour teaching days are also offered prior to the main courses. The courses are taught by highly experienced educators who are heavily active in their field.
The School’s academic excellence is assured through the School’s full-review of the participants’ experiences after each event, alongside the experience and expertise of its Academic Conveners and Advisory Board, all leading political scientists.
More information about each course and its syllabus is available on-line. The registration form is available at this link. Individuals from Full-member institutions can apply for funding online. The deadline for registration is July 17, 2014. For further details about the Summer School, inquiries can be addressed to Denise Chapman.
