10th Qualitative Research Summer School

25th - 28th April, 2017

This is the 10th Qualitative Research Summer School hosted by the School of Nursing and Human Sciences at Dublin City University. The Summer School is aimed at people who are doing or planning a research project, and who want practical help in the form of guidance from established figures in the relevant methodological field, as well as opportunities to reflect upon their own work. We offer a range of workshops on methods, design, data collection, analysis and writing up. In order to ensure that all the workshops are of the highest possible quality we are limited in the number of places we can offer. Therefore early booking is advisable.
