The STOR-i Centre for Doctoral Training is a joint venture between the departments of Mathematics and Statistics and Management Science. It offers students a four-year PhD programme in Statistics and Operational Research (STOR) developed and delivered with industrial partners.

The STOR-i training programme spans four years, consisting of a foundation year resulting in the award of a Masters of Research (MRes), followed by a three year period of study leading to a PhD.

The MRes year includes taught courses, projects and group activities which provide a grounding in Statistics and Operational Research, an overview of thriving research areas, and an opportunity to develop a formal research proposal for the PhD.
