The Statistics MSc serves to prepare students for particular career options and reflect the diverse research expertise within the School. The courses offer optional pathways in medical, pharmaceutical and environmental statistics. Covering the most up to date statistical methods and providing a grounding in substantive theory, these courses are suitable for those with a background in mathematics or statistics. We offer both full-time and part-time study options.

Data Science

Data Science is the systematic study of information. Data scientists work with others by taking an initial research or business question and gathering data, from a range of sources, and performing analyses to provide insight and to inform decision making.

A vital component of this course is an industry placement, allowing you to work on a real-life Data Science project.

The School of Computing and Communication administer this course, but you will take modules delivered by both the School of Computing and Communications and the School of Mathematical Sciences.
