Notice re Spring Program 2014

Dear Reps,


Apologies if you have received a double-up of emails as we transition from one email system to another while ensuring we cover all bases (particularly given the vigilance of some university SPAM filters).


If you missed out on the earlier emails, please see below a generic email for circulation, if you would be kind enough.


Many thanks and all the best


Marty Lynch

Program Coordinator





Dear Colleagues


The Early Bird Deadline for the 2014 ACSPRI Spring Program is less than 2 weeks away!


The Australian Consortium for Social and Political Research Inc. (ACSPRI) is a not-for-profit organisation that has offered short courses in research methods, predominantly for staff and HDR students at its member institutions, for nearly three decades.


These courses are suitable for researchers across a wide range of fields and cover a range of qualitative and and quantitative research methods and analysis techniques of various levels and also include training in a number of research-related software (different courses focus on SPSS, AMOS, Mplus, Nvivo, STATA and R).


In late September, ACSPRI will be returning to Sydney for the first time in 15 months, in what is expected to be a big week. Ten courses will be running for the full week of 29th September to 3rd October (the mid-semester break) at University of Technology, Sydney.


As our organisation is an ACSPRI Member, bookings from staff and students are eligible for substantial discounts. The full non-member rate is $3230 per course, whereas our staff pay only $1650 prior to the Early Bird Deadline on 6th August 2014. Full time students pay only $1070 before the same deadline. Program details, individual course descriptions, FAQs and enrolment instructions are all available at


Queries can be forwarded to or phoned through to Marty Lynch (ACSPRI Program Coordinator; Mon, Tue & Thu) on 03 8376 6496. Several courses typically fill up before the Early Bird Deadline, so be quick!
