A warm welcome to the students of Advanced Research Methods (STAT730). You will learn and explore the concepts of research which will range from developing research proposal, research design issues, data analysis to thesis writing. This is an advance level course in which a number of research articles and other readings will be provided to you to understand and comprehend the theoretical concepts (delivered in video lectures) in the light of contemporary research. So, the conventional handouts of VU are not included in the course material.

If you find any difficulty, confusion or query related to the course, you are welcome to ask through stat730@vu.edu.pk
