Course Description
This course builds on "Data Science with R: Intermediate". In this course we will build on the participants’ prior knowledge of R and focus on using R statistical modelling, advanced visualisations and advanced data transformation strategies. At the end of the course, participants will have reached an advanced knowledge of R and should be equipped to deal with almost all aspects of using R to analyse their research data. This course does not intend to cover in-depth statistical theory. If you are unsure whether this course is at the right level for you, there is a self-evaluation test available at website of You Say Data.

Notes for workshop participants: R (>4.3) and RStudio will need to be installed prior to the course; a second screen has been recommend by past participants 

1 Credit Point can be obtained by attending this course. Please contact your faculty for the recognition of performance for the doctoral degree.
