About the Qualitative Research Methodology Diploma
There are two main types of research – qualitative and quantitative. Whilst quantitative research focuses on collecting numerical figures, qualitative centres on motivation, reasoning and opinion. Qualitative research is important as it forms a basis for further quantitative studies. There are many ways of conducting qualitative research and this course will teach you all you need to know.
