2:i undergraduate degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject.
Months of entry
Providing a thorough grounding in statistical theory and techniques, the MSc course offers a launching pad for a professional career involving statistics, or a prelude to a research degree (PhD). You’ll receive practical and theoretical training in two core courses (Statistical Methods and Introduction to Statistical Practice), which is then applied in six modules of your choice.
Teaching at Master’s level places greater emphasis on practical work than at undergraduate level — this includes coursework reports and learning state-of-the-art specialised research subfields. After completing successfully the taught portion of the MSc course, students will then continue for a further ten weeks to put their knowledge into practice in the dissertation. The dissertation you will produce at the end of the course is supervised by members of our academic staff and gives you the opportunity to engage with research relevant to statistical work in both academia and industry.
