Data analysis and visualisation

Courses provided by ISD Digital Skills Development in quantitative and qualitative data analysis tools.

Courses are available in data analysis tools R with Rstudio, Stata, Matlab and Nvivo.  Most sessions are delivered via our remote classroom unless indicated (as 'campus based').  The Software for success sessions provide a brief overview of the options available and are a good starting point if you aren't sure what tool you need.  Note that we also have a comprehensive set of Excel courses which are covered under the Mastering Excel theme.
