Course content

This course 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.
