“It’s like ‘everything you wanted to know about qualitative research and were too afraid to ask!” 

(Mahnaz Sekechi, PhD Candidate, Birkbeck, University of London)

Getting into the field
There are plenty of textbooks about qualitative social research methods, but the reality of moving from theory to practice and getting out there ‘in the field’ can be a daunting prospect for any researcher. In this film a host of active researchers, ranging from early career to those who are more practised, talk openly about their experiences of carrying out qualitative research. Designed for first-time researchers and MA and PhD students with an interest in empirical research, this is the first in a series of films directly complementing contemporary methods literature, addressing the vital practical dimensions rarely covered by these sources.
