The Monash Statistical Consulting Platform provides statistical consulting services to underpin excellent research. The statistical advisors have a wide range of expertise in different statistical methods and approaches, and can help with a broad range of statistical modelling and inference problems, from the design of an experiment or a survey, to the presentation of statistical results.



Assistance for HDR students

The Monash Statistical Consulting Platform provides a free statistical consulting service, limited to a certain number of hours, to Monash Higher Degree Research Students to underpin excellent research projects. Advisors can provide help with questionnaire design, data analysis, testing the significance of results, visualisation and much more.

Assistance for researchers

The Platform provides statistical consulting support and services to the broader Monash community to help achieve high quality research results and outputs. Assistance to staff and students requiring statistical support in grant applications and ethics approvals is also provided.

Collaborations with industry

Many of the advisors are experienced in collaborative work with industry and understand the practical needs of business. The Platform provides statistical assistance and advice to companies and external organisations on a variety of statistical matters.

Statistical training

Each year approximately 12 different statistical training workshops are run as part of the Graduate Researcher Development workshop series organised by the Monash University Institute of Graduate Research. Topics covered include ‘questionnaire design’, ‘software packages for statistics’ and ‘statistical testing’. The Platform also offers targeted statistical training for departments and companies.
