Good statistical knowledge is essential when planning and conducting scientific research. It is also necessary for accurate interpretation of the research results. This course therefore offers an introduction to statistics with regard to scientific, patient-oriented research or other research into human or animal subjects. It covers different statistical concepts/methodologies rather than focusing on a particular package/software (as Introduction to R does).
Moreover, the statistical knowledge is necessary for analyzing the results obtained from the participant's own research. It also helps participants to evaluate the results of other published research and understand the relevance of these results for their own disciplines.

This course targets two groups of PhD candidates (1) those who have not taken any statistical courses and (2) those who wish to refresh their memory on basic statistical techniques. Therefore, PhD candidates who are familiar with the material taught here may skip this course.
Participants enrolled in Statistics 1 are expected to be familiar with a statistical package/software (such as SPSS). If you are unfamiliar with any statistical packages, we offer a brief introduction to SPSS in the beginning of this course. The first two classes are therefore reserved for those who are not familiar with the SPSS programme. You must register separately for these classes. We urge participants to contact the local ICT support service to install SPSS..
After completing this course, participants should have acquired the knowledge of and insight into:
PhD candidates (Promovendi) of FHML, MaCSBIO, M4I and MERLN: no fee
These courses are free of charge in case you are employed or registered as FHML PhD candidate.
Master students: no fee (*)
(*) PhD candidates and other participants are given preference. If some spots are still available, then Master students can apply.
