Course summary

Course Overview

In collaboration with the Mathematics Institute, the Department of Statistics has created the Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Mathematics and Statistics. Unlike many CDTs this is not dedicated to a single topic, but covers the range of research interests of both departments. Our vision is to create a thorough training environment in mathematical sciences, spanning theoretical, methodological, and applied areas.

The CDT environment provides common training to a cohort of PhD students across the mathematical sciences in addition to the specialized work of the PhD project under the supervision of individual faculty members. CDT students choose their supervisor and research topic during the first year of the programme.

Personalized PhD training, working with a nominated supervisor from day 1, is also available for students supported by external funds.

Research Themes

Warwick Statistics Department is one of the largest and most energetic research environments in the UK. It boasts many internationally recognised researchers eager to engage new bright students and collaborators so that they can contribute to their programmes of investigation.

Research within the department can be conveniently divided into three areas which are somewhat distinct but present a lot of synergies:

  • Probability and Stochastic Finance
  • Statistical Methodology and Computational Statistics
  • Data Intensive Research and Scientific Statistical Modelling

Teaching and Learning

The Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Mathematics and Statistics is a four-year program that includes a taught component in the first year with modules aimed specifically at research students. These modules are assessed by coursework and oral examination. PhD students also have the option to follow modules from our Masters courses to refine their knowledge in areas appropriate to their future research plans.

All PhD students are encouraged to participate in the Academy for PhD Training in Statistics (APTS), a taught course network that offers residential intensive courses four times per year.
