Requesting a methodology and statistics consultation

Do you encounter difficulties in the area of methodology and statistics while writing your Bachelor’s or Master’s thesis? 

If you're carrying out research at the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences of Utrecht University for your Bachelor's or Master's thesis, you may submit a request for advice on methodology and statistics.

Each student may schedule one consultation with one consultant. Are you working on a thesis project with several students? Then you can schedule one consultation as a group. It is explicitly not the intention to schedule multiple consultations with multiple consultants.

Your thesis supervisor must agree that the consultation will contribute to the supervision and give permission for the request. The supervisor should fill in a Statement of Agreement (pdf) accordingly, which you then take to your appointment. 

The consultant assumes that the methods, techniques, models and software you use in your thesis research have been taught in the education you received. The consultation is explicitly not meant for advising or teaching methods, techniques, models and software with which you are not yet familiar.

Sessions take place in the consultation shop in the Langeveld building (Room F1.11).

In semester 1 the consultation shop is open on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. In semester 2 it is open in the afternoons from Monday till Thursday and also on Thursday morning. You are advised to make an appointment in advance.

Please download the TIMETABLE (pdf) for more details.


Advice is free of charge for students of the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences.
