Course summary

Course description

The Probability and Statistics group in the Department of Mathematics have a long-standing reputation and experience of offering one year, high quality taught courses in areas of Statistics leading to the degree of ese courses have aimed to offer a thorough professional training which prepare students to embark on statistical careers in a variety of areas. (There is a shortage of statisticians trained to postgraduate level in the UK and the employment prospects for such people remain good.) They have also provided a very good foundation for further study at PhD level.

Our current MSc programme in Statistics allows students to take either the main programme or the associated pathway in Financial Statistics, depending on their interests and career aspirations. Each is built around a common core of five modules and then students study an additional set of three specialist modules to make a total of eight in all.

Coursework and assessment

There are two teaching semesters of 12 weeks each and approximately 15 weeks of project work. Assessment for the taught part is by exams and coursework. Following the successful completion of the taught part of the programme (worth a total of 120 credits) students are then expected to work on a dissertation from June to September which is worth a further 60 credits, making 180 credits in total. Information on the various topics and projects which will be available for dissertation are provided to the students in May from which they are invited to state their preferences.

Career opportunities

These programmes will prepare students for a broad range of statistical careers, particularly in the financial, medical, pharmaceutical and industrial sectors of the economy, but also with local and national government agencies, as well as in other areas. They will also provide an excellent foundation for students wishing to pursue advanced postgraduate research in statistics.
