The Monash PhD recognises the importance of professional skills development by incorporating it into the PhD.
The Statistical Consulting Service can help you with what is sure to become core to your research – the collection, analysis and presentation of your data and use of a statistical package.
You are eligible for a capped number of free statistical assistance over the course of your Higher degree by Research (HDR) candidature (first three years). An hourly fee applies if you need longer.
The service supports disciplines across the University such as those within the Department of Econometrics and Business Statistics, the School of Mathematical Sciences and the Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine.
The service can handle a wide variety of data on topics from accounting to zoology. It will help you avoid common problems in data collection and analysis plus save you time and money.
In addition to the above free individual statistical support, in 2015 there will be a series of seminars on statistical subjects each year.
