About the courseStudying for an MSc is an opportunity for committed scientists to focus on a relevant area of interest or practice and pursue an advanced qualification. While a taught masters will provide you with specialist training in your chosen field, a research masters will develop advanced research skills, working alongside Faculty of Science researchers - many of whom are major contributors in their field. You can study Statistics as a postgraduate specialisation in either the Faculty of Science or Faculty of Arts programmes. Statistics applies to almost any field, ranging from scientific research to business management and media analysis. From designing an experiment to evaluate the effects of a new treatment for a disease, to analysing a set of data ga thered by an ecologist - the diversity of applications of statistics is immense. There are different options to consider when choosing your postgraduate qualification in Statistics. While the taught masters is a programme with a professional focus and essential to work as a professional statistician, the research masters is an advanced programme to develop your research skills with the intention to progress to doctoral study in Statistics.
