Fees and attendance

The Manchester Methods Summer School will run from 12pm on Monday 26 June to 1.30pm on Friday 7 July 2017 (unless otherwise stated in your course information), giving external attendees time to travel to and from Manchester.

Payment will be required by 9 June 2017.

You may choose to pay when you book your place, or you can arrange to make your payment at a later date.

If your Summer School fee is being paid by an academic institution we are able to invoice the institution if you provide a Purchase Order from the institution (or alternatively written confirmation from the institution that no Purchase Order is required).

Any fees being paid by individuals as opposed to institutions must be paid online via credit or debit card.


  • Students - £600
  • University of Manchester Staff - £600
  • Other attendees - £900


We have a small number of bursaries available for University of Manchester PhD Students (reducing the cost of a week-long course to £300) and UK wide PhD Students (reducing the cost of a week-long course to £400).  If you would like to apply for a bursary, please email for an application form.  Bursary applications close on 16 March 2017.

The ESRC offers bursaries for up to £500 each to enable staff in the UK social science community engaged in research, teaching research methods or supervising research to update their research skills. Contract researchers working in HEIs are also eligible for the bursaries.  The NCRM bursary scheme is going to be open to all applications  from 27-31 March - further details are available on the NCRM's website.


Registrations cancelled less than 20 but more than 10 working days before the event will be refunded 50% of the registration fees. Registrations cancelled less than 10 working days before the event will not be eligible for a refund.

Please note that we reserve the right to cancel courses if unforeseen circumstances arise, or if there are insufficient numbers to run a course. In the unlikely event of a cancellation, you will be given reasonable notice and reimbursed for your course fees (where applicable), or given the option to attend another course on offer.
