Research methodology courses

To be an expert researcher or a research consultant, one needs to have a broad overview of all research methodologies and in-depth knowledge of each. Learn about research designs, validity, bias, confounding and other concepts in research. These courses are for all researchers and postgraduate students who want to deepen their understanding of research methodologies. The Comprehensive Research Methodology Course is a combination of the quantitative and qualitative methodology courses.

Research writing courses

The delightful end of every research process is to publish the findings to the relevant audience. Yet, scientific writing is a research skill many researchers struggle with. As a result, many researchers and analysts who are well able to conduct quality research struggle to publish their findings. “Publish or perish,” they say. CESAR says, “Register now and flourish”.
