The demand for numerate graduates exceeds the supply in most areas, as a glance at the professional job advertisement pages will reveal. Many new and exciting opportunities - in industry, medicine, government, commerce or research - await a science graduate who has rounded off their first degree with additional training in quantitative skills, such as those provided by taught postgraduate courses within the Statistical Science Department.
At graduate level, one taught programme is available within the department: the MSc Statistics. Students can choose to specialise in several different areas within our broader MSc programme and one of these has been formalised as a separate award: the MSc Statistics (Medical Statistics).
The department welcomes applications from prospective research students, both from the UK and from overseas. Supervision leading to an MPhil or PhD degree is available on a wide range of topics in statistics and probability, both theoretical and applied.
