Welcome to the Social Research Methods Centre at the University of Leeds!

This is a hub for sharing our diverse methods across the Faculty of Social Sciences. Our use of varied methods enables transformative research surrounding the human experience and societal challenges.

We run monthly informal events, and provide a community for social scientists within the University to share ideas and discuss their work.‚Äč This is a creative space to bring colleagues and postgraduate researchers together and our goal is to provide more methods training and development in the future.

This research centre will be a means of strengthening our methods expertise to make strong interdisciplinary contributions to the Faculty and the University, as well as the global methods community.

We have a number of Methods Ambassadors across all four schools of the Faculty, who bring a wealth of expertise and enthusiasm to our events and our goals.
