Course content

This programme, accredited by the Royal Statistical Society (RSS), equips aspiring professional statisticians with the skills they will need for posts in industry, government, research and teaching. It is suitable preparation too for careers in other fields requiring a strong statistical background.

Students whose mathematical and statistical background is insufficient for direct entry on to the appropriate programme, may apply for this course. The first year of the programme gives you a strong background in statistics, including its mathematical aspects, equivalent to the Graduate Diploma in Statistics. This is followed by the MSc in Statistics with Finance.
