    NVivo is designed to facilitate the management of qualitative research and analysis. A powerful and logical software, similar in architecture to Microsoft packages, NVivo supports a range of qualitative methodologies, particularly those that rely principally on coding as the means of conceptualisation.

    It is also suitable for mixed methods projects. For more information about NVivo visit the website and see the review on the CAQDAS Networking Project.

    This event is commissioned by the Graduate School for postgraduate researchers and due to the high demand by researchers, we are unable to offer places to those studying at master's level. Please ensure that you have your own data to work with before registering to attend.

    This two-day workshop provides the opportunity to gain a thorough introduction to NVivo and practice tasks using one's own data.
