Classroom-based courses for researchers

We offer free IT training for research staff and postgraduates, including Microsoft Office and specialist courses such as parallel programming, NVivo and SPSS courses.

All our Office courses use Office 2010.

Classroom-based courses are free*. You'll only be charged if you don't attend a course without giving two working days notice. You'll need to provide a departmental account number on your booking form. It will only be used if you don't attend.  Please contact your department for more information about account numbers.
