This MSc has a strong theoretical and methodological component to supplement a focus on applications of statistics to real life scientific problems. You can opt to follow pathways in medical, pharmaceutical or environmental statistics, depending on your field of interest. Graduates tend to enter careers as practising statisticians, university research assistants or go on to study for a PhD.
For each pathway, you will follow a set of compulsory modules covering core theory and methods, applied statistical modelling and practical skills in topics such as statistical computing, scientific writing, presentation and consultancy. You will also study optional modules tailored to your research interests and career aspirations. Your studies are completed with a supervised, in-depth, dissertation aimed at solving a substantive research question.
Modules Compulsory modules: • Statistics in Practice • Likelihood Inference • Generalised Linear Models • Bayesian Inference • Computational Intensive Methods
Optional modules (choose five from): • Extreme Value Theory • Clinical Trials • Principles of Epidemiology • Statistical Genetics and Genomics • Longitudinal Data Analysis • Pharmacological Modelling • Survival and Event History Analysis • Adaptive/Bayesian Methods in Clinical Research • Environmental Epidemiology
