Course Description

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.

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.
