Face-to-face Consultations

Are you an Honours, Masters or PhD student or staff member at ANU looking for statistical advice?

The Statistical Consulting Unit is staffed by experienced practising statisticians who maintain regular contact with other statisticians at the ANU, CSIRO and elsewhere. You can request an appointment to discuss your statistical issues with us. 

In most cases, a consultant will contact you within 3 days of your request. Consultations generally run for one hour and there is no limit to the amount of times you may see a statistician. There is no question too big or small that our consultants aren't happy to help with.

We encourage seeing one of our consultants as soon as the research starts to make the consultations much more beneficial. Masters & PhD students are encouraged to bring their supervisor(s) to their first consultation. Honours students are encouraged to bring their supervisor(s) to every consultation. Please follow the data organisation guidelines when providing your dataset to any consultant. 

Advice will not ordinarily be given over the phone unless the one to one consultation needs to be undertaken that way. In our experience, a 'quick' question often masks a complex research problem, requiring a consultation for discussion of all the issues.
