In a society that is increasingly data-driven, having the skills to conduct appropriate analysis and deliver robust conclusions is valuable across almost every industry. Designed for students from a wide range of quantitative backgrounds, this course will equip you for a lucrative statistical career in any sector that interests you.

The course will develop your practical and technical skills through analytical work based on real-world situations, from areas as diverse as social sciences, medicine or sport. You will explore the techniques employed in modern statistical research and, for the practical element, you will use industry-standard statistical software for the analysis of complex data.

As important as the analysis itself, you will learn to choose the most suitable statistical model for the type of data you’re faced with, and to communicate your conclusions clearly and succinctly. These aptitudes are part of a suite of transferable skills you’ll develop, including problem-solving and self-reflection, which will set you up to progress quickly in your statistical career.

Our MSc Statistics course is taught by academics with an international reputation for quality research. You will be part of our vibrant mathematics community, and you will be encouraged to engage with staff research and access our valuable network of partners and contacts.
