About the course

Back to course listing

This course is aimed at those who want to get to know R. It is the first day of our two-day Introduction to R for Life & Social Sciences course.

The day covers the basics of R and how it operates. You will get your data into R, manipulate it to obtain basic summary statistics, tables and charts and get to know how the R environment works.

As well as getting to know R, we will show you how RStudio can be used as a front-end for managing your R programming. You can use the computers in our training room or bring your own laptop.
