Course summary

Statistical ideas, tools and methods are used in almost all employment sectors, including banking and finance, government, medical research, the pharmaceutical industry and internet companies.

Streams

We offer six streams on our MSc in Statistics programme. On the application, applicants must first select the programme MSc in Statistics. Then they will be prompted to select their preferred stream.

  • MSc Statistics (General)
  • MSc Statistics (Applied Statistics)
  • MSc Statistics (Biostatistics)
  • MSc Statistics (Data Science)
  • MSc Statistics (Statistical Finance)
  • MSc Statistics (Theory and Methods).

The formal qualification received will include the name of the specialist stream and therefore can be used to indicate to employers or future research supervisors what they have specialised in during their MSc. For example: MSc Statistics (Applied Statistics). As a limited number of places exist for each specialist stream, unsuccessful applications for these streams will automatically be considered for the general MSc in Statistics.

A common set of core modules in the autumn term ensures that all students obtain advanced knowledge in the fundamental areas of probability theory, statistical inference and applied and computational statistics. A large and diverse set of elective modules is offered in the spring term, which provides the flexibility for you to develop your own specialist interests. During the summer term, you complete a research project with a member of academic staff on a state-of-the-art research problem that suits your interests. The assessment for your degree is made up of two-thirds core and optional modules, and one-third research project.

The MSc in Statistics is accredited by the Royal Statistical Society. Graduates from accredited degrees can apply to the Royal Statistical Society for the professional award of Graduate Statistician. Graduates from non-accredited courses may also apply for this status and will be considered on an individual basis.
