We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Statistics equip postgraduates with the skills to collect, analyse, interpret and present large sets of numerical data for a variety of purposes.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Social Statistics, Environmental Statistics, and Advanced Statistics. You’ll usually need an undergraduate degree in an appropriate maths-based subject to meet the entry requirements.
Statistics is applicable to a broad range of systems and processes across a variety of sectors and related industries. These courses will provide training in methods such as surveying, random sampling and stochastic processes to determine patterns within collected data, and model it to understand its implications.
For example, you may gear your studies towards a career in the healthcare sector, specialising in biostatistics and statistical genetics. These practices aid professional understanding of the effects of certain substances on the body, or trace diseases across geographical locations.
Alternatively, you may explore careers in aerospace engineering or mechanics, specialising in computational inference and machine learning. Statisticians also work within organisations to develop data management systems and financial models.
Finally, you might also work within environmental surveillance or urban planning, undertaking spatial statistics to deduce potential problems with ecosystems or population growth.
