Statistics for Non-Statisticians



The Statistics for Non-Statisticians programme is a three-course knowledge track that helps researchers and academics develop the statistical skills required for quantitative data analysis. 

If you want to feel more confident in your approach to statistical analysis, look no further. The Statistics for Non-Statisticians knowledge track starts with the basics and builds to more advanced concepts step-by-step. All concepts are explained simply, through short, expert-led videos.

Throughout this self-paced programme, there are practical exercises and an interactive workbook that allow you to immediately practise all the methods you have learned. 


The Statistics for Non-Statisticians knowledge track includes the following online courses:

  1. Basic Statistical Concepts
  2. Intermediate Statistical Concepts
  3. Advanced Statistical Concepts





What You'll Learn

Basic Statistical Concepts starts with the absolute basics and identifies ways to present and describe measured data, perform a two-sample t-test, and interpret statistical significance. 


Intermediate Statistical Concepts builds upon the first course and explains presentations and summaries of categorical data, ordinal data, and paired experimental designs and tests.

Advanced Statistical Concepts explores more advanced statistical concepts such as two-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), correlation, linear regression, logistic regression, analysis of covariance, multiple regression and dummy variables and confounding interpretations.

Who It's For

These online courses are particularly relevant for researchers and academics who have limited experience working with statistical concepts.

Get Prepared

This knowledge track explores PSPP, a free software application for the analysis of sampled data. We provide downloadable data sets for PSPP, so you can apply your skills within the application immediately.

This knowledge track also includes practical, interactive worksheets. To engage with the course fully, we recommend you use a laptop.
