University of Manchester Q-Step Centre

www.manchester.ac.uk/q-step

Q-Step is a £19.5 million programme designed to promote a step-change in quantitative social science training.

Over a five-year period from 2013, fifteen universities across the UK are delivering specialist undergraduate programmes, including new courses, work placements and pathways to postgraduate study. Expertise and resources will be shared across the higher education sector through an accompanying support programme, which will also forge links with schools and employers.

Q-Step was developed as a strategic response to the shortage of quantitatively-skilled social science graduates. It is funded by the Nuffield Foundation, the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE).

By participating in the Q-Step programme, the University of Manchester aims to provide graduates with the quantitative expertise to pursue further study and compete in the graduate job market.

The Manchester Q-Step Centre will benefit students in three Schools across a range of subjects, including criminology, English language and linguistics, philosophy, political studies and international relations, social anthropology and sociology.

Our students will learn techniques to help them understand, analyse and criticise data, through an integrated set of new courses and work placement opportunities.
