Need help with statistical problems in your project work (e.g. final year/research projects)?

Make an appointment with SAS for:

  • experimental design,
  • guidance on the correct statistical test,
  • interpretation of results
  • and help with statistical packages

Appointments may be made by any member of the university, individual or group. You will need to give information about your project when you book an appointment.

We offer support for software including:

  • Excel, SPSS, R,
  • MATLAB, Maple,
  • LaTeX, equations in Word or MathML
  • and mathematical/statistical programming in common languages.

Support available varies depending on the dropin tutor. Other tutors may be available on an on call basis but depending on your query you may need to wait, may be asked to come back to a specific dropin or be asked to make a SAS appointment.
