Essex Summer School at WASEDA 2018

Waseda University’s Center for Positive/Empirical Analysis of Political Economy of the Top Global University Project and the University of Essex will co-organize Essex Summer School (ESS) at Waseda University this summer.

ESS will offer two courses: “Maximum Likelihood” and “Survival Analysis.”

Upon the completion of the course, the University of Essex will issue their formal certification. Thus, it may be possible to transfer the course’s credits (2 credits) to your university’s credits. Please ask your department and university to check whether the credits can be transferred. The courses’ credits can be transferred to the credits for the School of Political Science and Economics at Waseda University.
