Feedback from PhD Researchers (2018)

  • Very pleased with the methodological focus in this seminar, and glad to see that there was information on how to build and manage data analysis strategies. It's great to see an emphasis on methodological rigour which is so important in qualitative research. Can't wait for the second session! 
  • The facilitator for this course was excellent both in his knowledge and delivery of the software. I came away with a much greater understanding of how NVivo works.
