Overview

Statistics MSc is a flexible degree programme enabling students from a wide range of backgrounds to both broaden and deepen their understanding of statistics.

The programme combines in-depth training in mainstream advanced statistical modelling with a broad range of specialisations, from financial mathematics to statistical bioinformatics; from clinical trials to risk management.

You’ll also develop your understanding of research methods in statistics from writing styles to programming skills, preparing you for a wide range of careers in different sectors. You’ll apply these skills in an independent research project.

Course content

The first two semesters of your course will consist of taught modules and in the third semester you will devote your time to a major dissertation.

Within each semester, there is one compulsory module and a range of optional modules. The core modules will develop your skills to lay the groundwork of the programme. You’ll learn a range of statistical computing techniques and build research skills such as academic writing, programming and literature searches. Options within the course vary from mainstream topics in statistical methodology to allow you to specialise in the areas of statistics that interest you. Specialist areas within the course include biological or financial applications of statistics, or broad-based statistical expertise. 

Accreditation

Royal statistical Society Accreditation

On graduation you will be eligible for the Graduate Statistician (GradStat) status and after five years’ experience this can be converted into the professional status of Chartered Statistician (CStat).

Being a chartered statistician provides employers, contractors and collaborators of statisticians a level of assurance that you are at the forefront of your field and is a mark of accomplishment to society.
