Statistics applies to almost any field, ranging from scientific research to business management and media analysis. From designing an experiment to evaluate a new medical treatment to analysing data gathered by an ecologist, the diversity of applications 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.
