The Warwick Q-Step Centre has been established to host the Q-Step programme at the University of Warwick. Its aim is to deliver a step-change in quantitative skills within one of the strongest UK and global Social Science Faculties.
- Contributing to the step-change required to address the UK’s national ‘deficit’ in quantitative methods
- Delivering new degrees at the forefront of international research and teaching in cutting edge quantitative methods
- Preparing students to work in ways that help them to understand, participate and intervene in today’s data-driven digital society
- Positioning Warwick globally as one of the leading universities of the digital age.
On 22 November 2016 students and staff from Warwick Q-Step Centre came together for the first Placement Poster Presentation event which was held in the newly-opened Oculus building on central campus. This annual event is a showcase of the experiences of final year Q-Step students who have completed the integral paid placement as part of their Warwick Q-Step degree programme.
The posters showcased a range of quantitative data research, data analysis, and report writing skills and we would like to congratulate all our final year students on their hard work; we are delighted at the exceptionally high standard of posters that they have produced.
