If you enjoy Mathematics and analysing data, and you wish to learn advanced statistical methods and their implementation by computer systems, then the Statistics degree is an excellent choice. After deepening and widening your understanding of Mathematics and Statistics during the first two years of the programme, you will be able to specialise in Statistics in the final year. The BSc (Hons) Statistics degree shares the same first two years as the BSc (Hons) Mathematics degree so it is possible to transfer between the two degrees up until the beginning of the final year. The Statistics degree aims to show you how to use statistical methods to analyse and solve problems in a wide range of areas, including the scientific and business sectors. You will have the opportunity to study applications of statistics in, for example, industrial quality control, medicine, forecasting and econometrics. This programme will meet the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation, awarded by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, when it is followed by subsequent training and experience in employment to obtain equivalent competences to those specified by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for taught masters degrees.
