Course content

Statistics facilitates vital decision-making where there would otherwise be uncertainty. Social policy, medical practice and engineering all rely substantially on statistics and their correct use and interpretation. In these instances, their impact can be life-saving.

Statisticians work in many fields, from government to market research, measuring anything from changes in the environment revealing the effects of global warming, to the effectiveness of medicines. There are a large number of employment opportunities for our graduates in medical statistics, medical research, commerce and industry, particularly the pharmaceutical industry; as well as career opportunities both in areas directly related to statistics, such as accountancy, and wider afield in areas like computing, environmental science and law.

Our practically-orientated course gives you the skills employers are looking for – not just in terms of statistical knowledge, but transferable skills which will be useful whatever field you decide to work in. There is a shortage of well-qualified statisticians across the scientific, industrial and public sectors and a great demand for data analysts and statistical consultants, which our course has been specifically designed to meet.
