Durham University

Advanced Research Computing


Due to the current situation with COVID-19 and the University being closed to face-to-face meetings and teaching, our courses will take place online. Participants will be notified about arrangements via email.

Here at ARC we are in the process of setting up a training programme. Our initial offerings in spring 2020 will cover version control (Git/GitHub), an introduction to programming, machine learning, and an introduction to Hamilton – see below for dates and to book a place. Later on we aim to extend our training program and add additional, more advanced, courses to our portfolio: if there are any courses you’d like to see us provide, please get in touch. We also plan to organise courses with external trainers.

Other relevant courses are provided by Durham Research Methods Centre (DRMC) and the Durham Centre for Academic Development (DCAD):

  • DRMC offer a range of courses on statistics, including courses on R, SPSS, linear regression, and data management.
  • DCAD offers a range of courses in their Digital Skills and Quantitative Methods sections, for example in R, NVivo, SPSS and the Microsoft Office products.
