This online course covers the mostly used regression models. The students will learn the theory of each regression model and when and how to perform such models to answer their research questions. The course consists of 6 sessions, taught via zoom, of 1.5hr lecture followed by 1.5hr computer practical session. During the lecture practical examples of typical research questions from different disciplines will be proposed and in the computer practical session students will have the opportunity to perform, evaluate and interpret regression models by analysing real data sets. The students can choose to perform the statistical analysis in Stata and R. Codes, commands, solutions with interpretations of results will be made available to students. In addition, the tutor will suggest the relevant reading materials. During the sessions students will have the opportunity to ask questions and talk about their research. 

This course would contribute to building the research skills of future academic leaders in a range of subject areas. It will use cutting-edge research findings to illustrate the application of these research skills, thus integrating research and education. This course is open to all students at any stage of their research development, and in particular to students that need to undertake statistical a


By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Know and understand different regression models
  • Specify, perform and interpret regressions
  • Propose, evaluate and select models 
  • Interpret and communicate results
