When I stumbled on the advert by Academic Hive, it looked like a perfect answer to my research needs. Yet, I had my fears. My fear was literally about me getting everything I needed to update myself. Gave the bootcamp a try, and I am glad I did. I got more than I expected during the two weeks bootcamp. I had an amazing experience. I am recommending Academic Hive 2.0 to everyone who wants to be deliberate on updating their research knowledge and skill.

Effiong, Nigeria
The bootcamp was Impactful. It was a major process of learning and relearning and I liked that I came out feeling more knowledgeable about the research and publication process than I did when I came in. My highpoints were the ice-breakers and discussion sessions, as well as the hands-on training on the SPSS, Eviews and MAXQDA software.
