Course content

This programme introduces you to the methods of statistical analysis, together with the underlying theory and some of the associated mathematics. The Graduate Diploma gives you the chance to study one or more specific areas of statistics in greater depth.

You will gain an understanding of statistical methods and will be able to apply them to the analysis of real-world data sets. You will also learn how to use statistical computer packages.

This is an undergraduate-level qualification that will prepare you for postgraduate study. Graduate Certificates/Diplomas typically take one to two years to complete and are made up of two, three or four modules at final-year undergraduate degree level (worth 60, 90 or 120 credits).

Information for international students

If English is not your first language or you have not previously studied in English, our usual requirement is the equivalent of an International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic Test) score of 6.5, with not less than 6.0 in each of the sub-tests.
