Advanced Training 

The SGSSS is committed to providing high quality advanced training (AT) in research methods to postgraduate students in the social sciences. Events can take place throughout the year and throughout Scotland and are open to post-doctoral students at any Scottish institution of higher education irrespective of their funding. All events are free to attend, and we can reimburse travel if the training is located more than 50 miles from your home institution.

The list of events is populated from students’ Training Needs Analyses. We collect these from your institution annually, and where training gaps are identified, we aim to fill these with this programme of events and with our Summer School programme.

Tickets for events are booked via Eventbrite and each event will be open to bookings around 3 weeks before the event is scheduled to happen.
