The Department of Biostatistics runs an annual teaching programme for PhD students and researchers at the Institute of Psychiatry. The programme is part of the IoP’s general teaching programmes on Behavioural Research Methodology.
The courses are available to staff and PhD students at the IoP only. Please note that, due to space restrictions, places cannot be given to Masters students or to non-IoP King's staff.
Places are limited, so to book a place a deposit of £50 is required and it is advisable to book early. Deposits are refundable upon completion of the minimum number of required sessions for the course.
To Book: Courses can be booked by emailing the Departmental Administrator, Katharine Bradley (email@example.com), specifying clearly 1) the code and title of the course(s) you would like to attend and 2) the department or section of the IoP you are working with. It would also be helpful if you could title your email 'Biostatistics course booking'.
One £50 deposit is sufficient to cover registration for several courses, however if you lose your deposit due to non-attendance you will need to supply another for any further courses.
Deposit: The £50 deposit can be cash or a cheque (made payable to King's College London). Please note that cheques must be post-dated to the date the relevant course starts.
Waiting lists: If the course you wished to attend is fully booked but you would like to be offered a place in the event of a cancellation please send your details to Katharine Bradley at the above address.
Important: Most courses are oversubscribed and there are often waiting lists. We understand that on occasion people are ill and need to cancel their registration at short notice. If you do need to cancel, please email Katharine at the above address as soon as possible. This will ensure that you do not lose your deposit, and that your place can be offered to someone on the waiting list.
Please note that if you do not attend the required minimum of sessions then you will lose your deposit and be removed from future courses.
STATA courses are recommended for PhD students and research staff (as opposed to SPSS).
Please note that bookings are made on a ’first come, first served’ basis.
Postgraduate taught course (e.g. MSc) organisers are advised that the courses cannot be “block booked” to form part of your programme. If you wish to discuss tailor-made statistics teaching for taught courses please contact the Head of Department.
