this is a great course for anyone who wants to develop a career in research. videos are great and engaging. the tutor makes biostatistics very simple and easy to understand.

This is indeed a unique course, as it teaches statistics specifically tailored for public health researchers. Even without any prior exposure to statistics, the course is very well designed to comfortably guide the student from the fundamentals to the more complex topics at a convenient pace. The exercises and tests are very useful and I especially appreciated that many key concepts were repeated at timely intervals so that there was little need to keep referring to older lectures. I now feel much more confident about my statistical skills and most importantly I have a clearer understanding of the various statistical measures and analytical tools that are regularly used in public health research. Thank you to all the course designers and teachers!

Nice

This has got to be the best, or one of the best statistical courses I have ever taken, and I have taken a fair few by now. My understanding of key statistical concepts such as p values, confidence intervals, standard error and more has considerably improved. The way the instructor tied the material to published studies made the course very interesting and kept me curious throughout it, even though in my research area I have little to no need of some of the analysis that was covered. The slides, however, can be improved. There are too many typos and errors on most presentations which can get quite confusing. Still, The negatives are negligible compared to the positives. This course is highly recommend.
