Our Aims

The Warwick Q-Step Centre has been established to host the Q-Step programme at the University of Warwick. Its aim is to 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 new degrees at the forefront of international research and teaching in cutting-edge quantitative methods;
  • Preparing students to work in ways that help them to understand, participate and intervene in today’s data-driven digital society;
  • Positioning Warwick globally as one of the leading universities of the digital age.
