The Statistical Consulting Centre offers advice, statistical consulting and data analysis to staff and postgraduate students within the University and others outside the University.

Consultants can assist with all stages of a research project and postgraduates are strongly encouraged to see a consultant when they are planning their study. When you have reached the stage of entering or analysing your data, you can prepare for meeting with a consultant by following these guidelines.
