Study with us

We have developed an interdisciplinary social analytics undergraduate pathway as well as an ambitious programme of engagement at AS level, through the QCF level 3.

To increase the quantitative competency of our undergraduate students we have created a a specialised core degree programme where the re-use of modules on other programmes develops a culture of quantitative social science.

In addition, we recognised that in order to raise general student competency, an ambitious programme of social engineering must also be put in place. To do this we wanted to create a different pool of students that might be recruited to study BSc Social Analytics. The new QCF level 3 (AS level equivalent) qualification was designed with this goal in mind.
