Our Aims

The Warwick Q-Step Centre was established to host the Q-Step programme at the University of Warwick. The aim of this Programme is to help deliver 'a step-change' in quantitative skills within one of the strongest UK and global Social Science Faculties.


  • Contributing to the step-change required to address the UK’s national ‘deficit’ in quantitative methods;

  • Delivering (through our host deprtments) new undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in quantitative methods;

  • Peparing students to work in ways that help them to understand, participate and intervene in today’s data-driven digital society;

  • Positioning Warwick as one of the leading universities of the digital age.
