Bursaries for the MSc Applied Quantitative Methods

Manchester Metropolitan University Q-Step Centre is located in the Department of Sociology. We are currently seeking highly motivated graduates for our MSc programme in Applied Quantitative Methods, for which 10 bursaries are available. The MSc approaches the study of quantitative methods in an innovative way, which develops career-ready skills that prepare students for work with data and quantitative analysis. This programme is also excellent grounding for doctoral study.

The course emphasises the development and application of key quantitative methods and analytical techniques. It focuses on the use of quantitative methods within ‘real world’ contexts and a key aim is to develop graduates’ career-ready skills in this field. A range of quantitative techniques are covered including multiple regression, multi-level modelling, questionnaire design, quantitative evaluation, and data management. One unit, ‘Statistics in Practice’ explores knowledge exchange, mobilisation and achieving impact with research. There is a mixture of core units and specialist options. The course culminates in a placement-based dissertation, in which students will produce a piece of research on behalf of one of our partner organisations.

For further information about the course content, fees and career prospects of this programme, please visit MSc Applied Quantitative Methods.

The bursary is available full-time over one year only. The successful candidate will be based at the Manchester campus.

The successful candidates should have a first class degree and a commitment to furthering their knowledge and understanding of quantitative research. It is not necessary for their first degree to include statistical analysis. However, a good grounding in research methodology would be an advantage.
