This course is run in conjunction with the Medical Statistics Group in the University’s School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR). Accredited by the Royal Statistical Society, it provides professional training for a career in the medical, pharmaceutical and health services industries.
The course is based on the MSc Statistics with additional training in specialist areas of medical applications.
Our graduates go into finance, manufacturing and pharmaceuticals. They work for government agencies and research institutes with major organisations such as First Direct, GlaxoSmithKline, Marks and Spencer, the Government Statistical Service and Medical Research Council units. Our courses can also prepare you for PhD-level research.
Our academics are in demand. They are members of international societies and organisations, and they speak at conferences around the world. They bring new ideas into the classroom so you can see how research is improving on existing approaches. Our solar scientists were the first to record musical sounds created by vibrations in the sun’s atmosphere.
Our Statistical Services Unit works with industry, commerce and the public sector. The services they provide include consultancy, training courses and computer software development.
You can study full-time over a year or part-time over two to three years via online distance learning. The MSc Mathematics is only available as a full-time course.
You may be able to get funding from the University or an external company. Course-specific studentships may also be available. You should apply for these as soon as possible.
There are lectures, tutorials and computing sessions. You’ll do group work, presentations and role play. Most statistics lectures are recorded so you can watch them again later.
The distance learning option is taught online with support via email and phone. Distance learners also come to the University for residential weeks. You’re assessed by exams, project work and a dissertation.
