The application deadline for the MSc Statistics with September 2014 entry is 15 March 2014. We will not be able to consider any candidates who wish to apply after this date.

The application deadline for the MSc Statistics (Medical Statistics) with September 2014 entry is 15 May 2014.

Please note that if you apply to the MSc Statistics (Medical Statistics) after 15 March 2014 then there is no guarantee whatsoever that you will be able to transfer to the MSc Statistics either later in the admissions process or after having enrolled at UCL.
