M.Sc. Statistics

The full-time MSc is completed over a 12-month period. There are two semesters of taught material, which account for 60 ECTS credits, followed by the MSc project in summer, which accounts for 30 ECTS credits. The course may be taken part time over 27 months, with approximately equal amounts of ECTS/CATS credits studied in each year. 

You will be provided with training and education in a variety of techniques, methods and approaches of Statistics, and in their application to practical problems arising in different contexts. The programme structure allows you to select options ranging from the more theoretical aspects of Statistics, including a module on research topics, to those which cover material focussed on practical applications of Statistics. This is complemented by modules on research skills, and several presentations on transferrable skills and employability by the University Careers and Employability Team. Seminars given by Statisticians working at a wide range of organisations will provide opportunities for networking.
