Course content

Statistics is essential to making advances in science, business and public policy, and a fascinating field of study in itself.

This MSci programme is ideal if you want to take your study of statistics to an advanced level, while completing rigorous training across other mathematical fields. A three-year Mathematics and Statistics BSc is also available.

You’ll spend your first year building a foundation across pure, discrete, decision and modern applied mathematics, probability and statistics.

From the second year you’ll specialise in statistics, building statistical theory and methodology on mathematical foundations, especially probability theory. Probabilistic modelling has applications in genetics, quantum physics and risk analysis, and is increasingly used in the financial sector. You can study design of experiments, financial time series and actuarial mathematics.

You can then choose modules on aspects of statistics that most interest you, or broaden your studies to encompass other areas of mathematics.

In the final year you’ll choose advanced modules and complete a final-year research project, under the supervision of an academic expert.


You can complete your Mathematics with Statistics MSci in four or five years. If you choose to study abroad, this will take place in Year 3, and Year 3 modules will instead be studied in Year 4.
