The MSc in Statistics if offered by the School of Mathematics and Statistics in UCD. The degree programme is aimed at students who have an undergraduate degree which has a strong focus on statistics and/or mathematics. The purpose of the degree programme is to provide highly numerate students with a thorough knowledge of statistics.

The MSc in Statistics is specifically designed to provide students with a solid theoretical and applied statistical knowledge so that they can be employed either as an applied statistician or a statistical researcher on completion of the degree.

The MSc in Statistics provides training in both applied and theoretical statistics, and prepares the student well for a career either in industry or in academia. The taught modules in the programme provide a thorough grounding in statistics; the (supervised) research project introduces the students to the area of statistical research. Additionally you will learn how to use to a wide range of statistical softwares.

The MSc programme runs from:

September to August (full time) - 1 year or 3 semesters
September to August (part time) - 2 years or 6 semesters

The Higher Diploma in Statistics course is designed for graduates whose degrees have substantial mathematical content, and who want to develop their expertise in the application of statistical methods and broaden their career opportunities. The course may also be taken as a foundation for entry into the MSc Degree in Statistics. The course may be taken over one year (full time) or two years (part time).

There is a continuing demand by employers for numerate graduates. There are many new opportunities in commerce, government, industry, medicine and research for graduates who have added to their first degree with the training in quantitative and computing skills provided by the Higher Diploma in Statistics.

Course Details

This course provides you with a thorough theoretical grounding in statistics as well as a giving you practical experience of analysing real data.

Format

The Higher Diploma in Statistics consists of coursework divided into nine core modules. These modules are a blend of theoretical and applied statistics.

Students attend an average of 12 lectures, three tutorials and three computer practicals per week over the 24-week academic year. All modules have elements of continuous assessment which you submit throughout the course.

Lectures, tutorials and computer practicals take place between 9am and 6pm, Monday to Friday/

Modules (60 credits)

Probability and Mathematical Statistics (10 credits)
Statistical Theory (10 credits)
Introduction to Regression Analysis (5 credits)
Data Analysis I (5 credits)
Generalised Linear Models (5 credits)
Time Series (5 credits)
Survival Analysis (5 credits)
Current Topics in Statistics I (5 credits)
Statistical Consulting (10 credits)

The applied modules also equip you with advanced practical software-oriented skills in popular statistical software packages such as R, SAS andSPSS.

Students taking the part-time option take 25 credits in year 1 and the remaining 35 credits in year 2.

Assessment

Five modules (30 credits) are examined exclusively by continuous assessment. The remaining four modules (30 credits) are examined by both continuous assessment (worth 20% of the module mark) and end-of-year written examinations (worth 80% of the module mark).

The continuous assessments can be written home-work, computer practical assignments, in-class tests, written data analysis reports or computer practical examinations.

Careers

The course offers you the opportunity for further study at master’s degree level or employment in areas such as medical research, the pharmaceutical industry, government departments/agencies, sales and marketing research, finance and banking, the insurance industry and software development and support.

The Higher Diploma in Statistics is for those with a non-statistical background who wish to reach in nine months a level of statistical knowledge equivalent to that of a BSc Honours degree in Statistics. It is specifically designed to provide students with a solid theoretical and applied statistical knowledge so that they can continue to further study in the field of Statistics or be employed as an applied statistician on completion of the degree.

The Higher Diploma in Statistics is a taught postgraduate programme which provides students with a good background in statistical theory and methods. Students learn about the fundamentals of probability and statistics, as well as gaining knowledge of standard statistical techniques. Additionally students will learn how to work with several statistical software packages.

This programme runs full time for one academic year - September to May (2 semesters)
This programme runs part time for two academic years - September to May (4 semesters)

This programme is intended for students with a numerate background but who may have insufficient background knowledge to gain entry to the MSc programme.

The MA in Statistics is of 16 months durations (4 semesters) and will bring students to the same level as the 1 year MSc degree in Statistics. Currently students without sufficient statistical background knowledge can attain Masters level proficiency by first completing the Higher Diploma in Statistics followed by the MSc in Statistics, which together takes 2 years. The MA in Statistics provides an alternative pathway in 16 months. There is no comparable programme in Ireland or the UK.

This programme runs for 16 months or 4 semesters (Full time)/ 32 months or 8 semesters (Part time)

Overview

A student must write a thesis under the direction of a member of staff containing a significant new result or an original insight. Collaborations with outside parties have involved work in Chemistry, Medicine, Archaeology, Banking, Computer-Aided Design, and other areas.

Career Options

The MLitt acts as a gateway to the PhD (Arts) which is the main entry degree for careers in research and third level teaching. However, many postgraduate research graduates take up employment in areas such as Industry, Commerce, Banking and Finance, Insurance, Software Development, Process Engineering or Education.

A 2009 study in the US found that the best three jobs in terms of income, work environment, and other factors were Mathematician, Actuary, and Statistician, all jobs suited to Mathematics and Statistics graduates.
