    Digital Skills Development courses for the summer term

    By Caroline Norris, on 12 April 2018

    ISD Digital Skills Development have released new dates for this term. Courses and workshops cover UNIX, Excel, Photoshop, R, Stata, SPSS and more. We are also running Word courses to help you write up your dissertation or thesis.

    Most courses take place in computer workrooms so there is no need to bring your own device.  However, you should bring your own (fully charged!) laptop for Kick-starting your literature review and all R sessions.

    If you can’t attend any of the dates or there is no date available for the course you want, enrol on our Moodle course to be notified of future sessions.

    For a full list of all courses and workshops visit the student course catalogue or the staff course catalogue.  Visit the HR booking system for all bookings.

    Our student booking system is currently unavailable.  If you are student you can book via the link above.  You will initially receive an email saying that you are on the reserve list.  If a place is available you will receive a further email within 2 working days (or before the course, whichever is sooner) confirming your place. 

    Excel Essential Skills – WORKSHOP 1 is not on the HR booking system
    The workshop on 2 May is full.  If you wish to book for 9 May please email isd-digiskills@ucl.ac.uk
