Message from the Course Director (Dr Ed Cohen)

Statistics is a dynamic and thriving scientific discipline that has relevance in almost every area of the modern world. Statisticians work on fascinating problems at the interface where mathematics meets the natural sciences, medicine, engineering, social and political science, data science and finance, as well as being a theoretically rich and diverse discipline its own right.

We are proud to announce that from October 2018, in addition to the general MSc in Statistics course we will be offering four additional specialisation streams: Theory and Methods, Applied Statistics, Statistical Finance and Biostatistics. The formal qualification received will include the name of the specialisation stream and therefore can be used by the students to indicate to employers or future supervisors what they have specialised in during their MSc. As a limited number of places exist for each specialisation stream, unsuccessful applications for streams will automatically be considered for the general MSc in Statistics.

We look forward to hearing from exceptional students to join our MSc programme in the academic year 2018-2019.
