The sixth methods@manchester Summer School will be held at The University of Manchester from 2 July to 13 July 2018. Each course at the school will run for one week, offering four days of content to a five-day timetable (Monday afternoon to Friday lunch-time), building on successful methods@manchester and CMIST short-courses given throughout the year.
