Develop the skills and knowledge needed to become a practising statistician. You’ll also gain a sound foundation in mathematics and computing. Statistics is the collection, analysis and interpretation of data and is central to areas such as scientific progress, government and sound medical research. You’ll gain the skills and knowledge needed to work as a statistician. The first two years will provide an introduction to mathematics at university level before giving you the option to specialise later on in the course. In Year 2 you will also have the option to study computing and economics units run by other departments. Final year topics include medical statistics, experimental design and multivariate data analysis as well as more theoretical topics such as statistical inference. As with all of our mathematics courses you will have the option to switch after the first year, so you can keep your options open when you apply.
