Course summary

Available as an MSc, Warwick's Statistics course aims to cover topics most relevant to a career as a professional statistician. Your training will open the way to employment in many sectors, including marketing, insurance, banking and pharmaceutical industry.

Course Overview

Providing a thorough grounding in statistical theory and techniques, this 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 through two core modules, which is then applied in six optional 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 course, you will continue for a further ten weeks to put your knowledge into practice through a dissertation.

Assessment

Assessment is initially made for each module separately: some modules have an element of continuous assessment through coursework, but the majority of modules assessed through written examinations in May and June or, for some modules, January. Your performance in the core and optional modules combined is then examined by an examinations board consisting of academic staff plus an External Examiner appointed from another university. Dissertations are examined in the Department and then by the External Examiner. The MSc degree is awarded subject to satisfactory standard in the dissertation and taught modules. Students who do outstandingly well in both taught modules and the dissertation may be awarded the MSc with Distinction or Merit.

Careers
