Social Sciences Research Methods Programme | SSRMP

HP - Carousel - Externals

Many of our modules are open to postgraduate students, researchers, academics, and members of other external organisations.

Charged-for bookings 

We are happy to offer our training as widely as possible, to help social science researchers improve or refresh their skills.  Our pricing policy reflects our intention to be as accessible as possible, while needing to recover costs where these are not supported by our University funding. 

The following charges will apply:  


Charge per module (modules consisting of up to 4 hours of duration) 

Charge per set (modules of 5 hours or longer duration) 

Postgraduate students, postdocs or staff from 'charged-for' Departments or Colleges at Cambridge 



Members of other Universities (not including Anglia Ruskin University or CAM DTP affiliated universities, for which access is free, subject to availability)



Members of public and government bodies including NHS and schools, and industry members 



Charged-for bookings will be accepted subject to capacity. The booking fee will be payable at the point of confirmation and will be non-refundable. 


Availability 2023/24

Modules in our Basic Statistics stream are very heavily subscribed; places on these modules are therefore usually restricted to students and staff at Cambridge University. This year, we are able to offer a selection of our other modules to external participants, though places are limited.

Our modules

Using the link above, you will be able to view the modules available in the 2023/24 academic year. You won't be able to book via these pages, but (from 5 October 12:00pm) you will find information there on the dates, times, and course content. 

Please note: The SSRMP cannot provide software that may be needed to take part in some of the courses, below. Where software is needed, it will be stated in the course description so that prospective students can arrange a licence for that software, themselves. Please do not book onto a module with us if you are unable to get access to the appropriate software licence. 

How to book

You can make a request to book onto one of the courses above by completing our booking form, once bookings go live (5 October 2023 at 12:00pm):

Request a booking

Once you have done this, our team will direct you to a payment link.
When you have paid, our team will enrol you on to the course on the university booking system, and onto Moodle - the online repository for course materials. This may take a day or two. 

In the event that your course is taught in a computer lab, you will receive a guest login. Guest access to wireless networks is also available in University buildings.

Please note that the above information relates ONLY to external participants.
If you are associated with Cambridge University and are as a member of a non-participating department at the UoC, including the School of Clinical Medicine, or from Colleges or other Affiliated Departments or Organisations, please book via our internal booking system. NB. You will be expected to pay for any SSRMP modules that you book on. More information on participating and non-participating departments can be found on the Booking Policy.
