2022 Summer School in Social Research Methods

(June 20 – July 1)

A Methods Excellence Network Event, hosted by Nijmegen School of Management, Radboud University, the Netherlands
World-class methods courses -- and so much more

If you want to bring your research to the next level, the Summer School in Social Research Methods is the place to be. It is a unique venue: besides world-class methods courses taught by top pedagogues, with small-group interaction and individual tutoring, you get more:

  • Tailored advice on choosing courses and a sequence across week 1 and week 2;
  • Pluralism, via the full diversity of methods covered;
  • Linking up. The Summer School spirit is all about community-building, sharing, and networking.
  • A rich optional afternoon programme that enables you to:
    1. step back and reflect your research via transversal research design sessions,
    2. get feedback from other researchers and diverse methods experts via a dissertation workshop,
    3. follow a supplemental short course.

So: for a given week, your registration fee gives you access to a given course (15 hours) + up to 11.5 hours of extra training activities;

Feel free to browse through our top courses, check out our afternoon programme - and if something catches your eye, register via the Radboud Summer School digital environment.
