The aim of this course is to introduce the R programming language and how to use it to perform statistical inference and data visualization. Participants will be introduced to the R language syntax, basic types of data in R, how to explore data through descriptive statistics and visualization and how to apply a selection of basic techniques for statistical inference. The focus of the course is on the application of these techniques with R, and not on the underlying statistical theory which can be learnt in other courses. The course will be a combination of lectures, interactive live coding, individual exercises and self-study.
