The course will help you develop and consolidate your skills in experimental design, sampling, and analysis, presentation, and interpretation of data.
In two 2-hour sessions every week you will work through a series of computer-based data or writing tasks, all centred on biological and environmental themes.
Teaching is informal and friendly. During sessions, staff and demonstrators will chat to you about your progress and provide help.
Assessments are an online multiple-choice test (33%) and an individual project (67%).
The course will help you to go as far and as fast as you can in developing important experimental skills.
