This programme provides intensive training in statistics applicable to the social sciences, econometrics and finance. The aim of the programme is to foster an interest in theoretical and applied statistics and equip you for work as a professional statistician.

You will learn to analyse and critically interpret data, build statistical models of real situations, and use programming tools and statistical software packages. 

The compulsory course will provide you with comprehensive coverage of fundamental aspects of probability and statistics methods and principles. It provides the foundations for the optional courses on more advanced statistical modelling, computational methods, statistical computing and advanced probability theory. Options also include specialist courses from the Departments of Methodology, Mathematics, Economics and Social Policy. The research stream is similar to the MSc Statistics nine-month programme but involves a compulsory dissertation which replaces one unit's worth of optional courses and extends the length of the programme to 12 months. 

Graduates of the programme are awarded Graduate Statistician (GradStat) status by the Royal Statistical Society.
