Other Methods Programs

The IPSA-NUS Methods School is a non-profit venture and committed to providing affordable research methods training to students, post-doctoral fellows, junior faculty, civil servants, and professionals from all over the Asia-Pacific and beyond. Registration fees have been set accordingly, and with all courses being taught by highly experienced international faculty from the U.S. and Europe, the Methods School offers the same quality of instruction as other methods programs, but at a much better price. Even after factoring in expenses for travel to Singapore, Methods School courses represent excellent value for money.
