"I would like to thank Spyros, the teachers, and the support team for Spring School 2022 and putting the event together. I have enjoyed the week very much and learned much about useful methods of analysing text. The interactions with the teachers and fellow students was excellent!"

"Aside from words of gratitude to the instructor and the admin support team, a special huge thanks to Leonardo for the great refresher course and alerting us to the pitfalls of R and tidyverse. Great course! Thank you!"

"The Oxford Spring School in Advanced Research Methods, which I attended in 2018, has been an excellent opportunity to build on my existing training in comparative case studies and to develop a broader and more sophisticated skillset. Especially with regards to process-tracing, and thanks to the inputs collected during the School’s lectures and informal sessions, I have been able to develop a better articulated and more precise theoretical framework for my doctoral project, as well as to refine its methodology. Importantly, the School’s faculty - which directly draws from the Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Oxford - is a real plus as it gathers scholars consistently published across the top academic journals, giving attendants a unique glimpse into the rigorous methodological processes required to generate first-rate research. Last but not least, the School has allowed me to explore new ideas and approaches, which I plan to develop and employ in future projects, and to meet other PhD students and ECRs from different research institutions across the world. I would definitely recommend to attend the Oxford Spring School in Advanced Research Methods to anybody considering it."
