This programme is intended for students with a numerate background but who may have insufficient background knowledge to gain entry to the MSc programme.
The MA in Statistics is of 16 months durations (4 semesters) and will bring students to the same level as the 1 year MSc degree in Statistics. Currently students without sufficient statistical background knowledge can attain Masters level proficiency by first completing the Higher Diploma in Statistics followed by the MSc in Statistics, which together takes 2 years. The MA in Statistics provides an alternative pathway in 16 months. There is no comparable programme in Ireland or the UK.
This programme runs for 16 months or 4 semesters (Full time)/ 32 months or 8 semesters (Part time)
