The aim of this society is to introduce students to qualitative research, to both deepen and widen their knowledge on qualitative data collection and analysis.

The objectives are:

  • Explore theoretical concepts through reading and discussion 
  • Learn from experts in the field through talks and workshops
  • Gain practical experience of using qualitative methods through collaboration on staff projects
  • Meet like minded students for support, personal development and socialising

Did you know that we won the 'Education Impact Award' "to recognise a group or individual(s) who have made a significant impact on the educational experience at ARU."?
