Mathematics and Statistics Support

Statistics support appointments and drop in sessions

Statistics support provides individual or group guidance tailored to your needs. We can help with all aspects of the learning of statistics as well as undertaking quantitative research including understanding course material, study design, choosing the right tests, using a range of statistical software and techniques, and reporting results. Online appointments and drop in sessions are available for most of the year but on campus drop in sessions are term time only.

If this is your first stats support session , we would appreciate it if you could fill in a pre-session survey before your session and a feedback survey after as part of ongoing research on statistics support.

Statistics drop in sessions

A drop in session is when any student can turn up during the specified time to get advice and are not bookable.
Online drop in time (all year) Wednesdays 4-5:30 pm Vitual room: skills centre drop in

Face to face drop in sessions (term time until Easter)
Adsetts library, computer lab 6624: Mondays 12:30-2:00pm
Collegiate library, computer lab C106 Thursdays 12:15 - 1:45pm

Notes: During busy times, sessions may be extended or additional sessions added. During the strike period or in the event of snow, stats support may be moved online. See Unihub for the most up to date sessions times and locations.
Online appointments with Ellen and any online drop in sessions not on Wednesdays are held in Ellen's virtual room

Statistics support is primarily provided by one lecturer (Ellen) and therefore support is limited particularly during the summer (school holiday periods). Emails to stats support may not be answered quickly either for the same reason. The Wednesday night online drop in should run each week though.
As well as individual support, we also have a wide range of statistics Resources using SPSS, R SAS and Jamovi and an interactive tool for choosing the right statistical test.
