What You’ll learn:

  • Understanding of the research process
  • How to develop a research idea into a research question
  • How to formulate a research question
  • How to do a literature survey
  • Basics of research proposal writing
  • Ethics of field and lab research
  • Common statistical issues in research (study design, sampling and hypothesis testing)
  • How research skills are useful for non-academic purposes
  • Lifetime skills for research and non-research purposes (referencing, documentation, time management, collaborative writing and smart note taking)


  • Provides a 360 degree view of the research landscape. Our goal is to help develop your researcher-self and not merely provide training to analyze data.
  • Our approach is drawn from decades of experience tackling untapped and neglected real-life problems. This training will help build your confidence to independently read and critique articles published in scientific journals.
  • We aim to shape the thought process and guide the learners to develop their research-mindset, which is essential to becoming a successful researcher.

Who this course is for:

  • If you have no research experience but want to learn the end-to-end research process– from idea generation to publication– then this course is a great one to start with
  • If you have some experience but you are not confident enough to start your independent research journey, then this course will be the stepping stone for our supervised research internship (SRI)
  • If you are an undergraduate student and planning to conduct your first research project, this course will adequately prepare you to step into your undergraduate thesis/project or major paper

What this course is not about:

  • This foundation course will cover some basic statistical principles. But this course is not meant to learn advanced statistical techniques, data management or analysis
  • The foundation course will introduce data collection strategies and demonstrate some open source and commercial software.
  • This course is not designed for one-on-one mentorship. However, mentors will be available during office hours where you will have opportunity to discuss your problem.

Payment procedure:

  • Amount: 10,000 Taka
  • Deadline: May 28, 2021
