Q-Step Centre at UCL


UCL Q-Step Centre

Q-Step is a £19.5 million programme designed to promote a step-change in quantitative social science training in the UK. Funded by the Nuffield Foundation, ESRC and HEFCE, Q-Step was developed as a strategic response to the shortage of quantitatively-skilled social science graduates. Four academic departments contribute to UCL’s Q-Step Centre offering state of the art training in quantitative research methods, data analysis and visualization.
