Providing a thorough grounding in statistical theory and techniques, the MSc course offers a launching pad for a professional career involving statistics, or a prelude to a research degree (PhD).
You’ll receive practical and theoretical training in two core courses (Statistical Methods and Introduction to Statistical Practice), which is then applied in six modules of your choice. Teaching places greater emphasis on practical work than at undergraduate level — this includes coursework reports and learning state-of-the-art specialised research subfields. The dissertation you’ll produce at the end of the course is supervised by members of our academic staff and gives you the opportunity to engage with research relevant to statistical work in both academia and industry.
Global demand for MSc-trained statisticians is notably strong and increasing. Our MSc postgraduates have gone on to apply their skills in a number of fields, including medical, bioinformatics and pharmaceuticals research; actuarial work; investment banking; and government statistical analysis. Many of our postgraduates also advance to PhD study and to careers in academia.
