Course Code


Course Leader

Dr Charlotte Albury
Course Description

This two-day online course, introduces the principles and practice of qualitative interview data analysis, with emphasis on thematic analysis. 


Over two days our approachable and research-active experts will show that analysis is achievable through an accessible step-by-step process, and will provide all data for you to work with. This process starts with organising data on day one, and finishes on the second day with finding a story that could translate to a research paper or thesis chapter. 


We aim to support those who are planning to undertake or manage qualitative research using in-depth or semi-structured interviews or those who have already collected qualitative interview data which they are unsure how to analyse. While it is aimed at the needs of health professionals, researchers, academics and postgraduate students, the skills developed here apply to many settings  - so everyone is welcome, regardless of their research or professional background.



The course will include:

  • Expert-led lectures focusing on the principles of qualitative data analysis, with emphasis on thematic analysis
  • Demonstrations, practical online exercises, and small group work to develop participants’ skills in coding and categorising interview data and in interpreting and conceptualising data
  • Practical exercises to follow the analysis process from raw data, to conceptualising a research paper, or thesis chapter.
  • An overview of the role of qualitative data analysis software, using NVivo 12.
  • Practical online exercises considering how to conduct and recognise good ‘quality’ qualitative analysis
  • An accessible overview of the role of theory in qualitative data analysis
  • Feedback to support your learning and understanding
