Katie Harron

I really enjoyed the medical statistics modue - it's something I'd really like to pursue after I've finished the masters. We all have our own desks in the Msc room - its our little home! Wen we have a lot of work to do we can spend all day in here, the atmosphere i good and we can help each other out if anyone gets stuck.

Discovery Statistics delivers scientific and business benefits, providing insight for decision making, reducing costs and saving time. The MSc is an essential requirement for my job.
