Prospective Undergraduates

The Department of Statistical Science at UCL offers a friendly and supportive atmosphere, where small-group teaching and personal attention are available for all students. When founded, it was the first university statistics department in the world; however, research and teaching have kept pace with modern concerns, including applications of statistics in science, medicine, industry, economics and finance. The department occupies recently refurbished accommodation with its own lecture theatre, common room, reading room and computer room.

All our undergraduate degree programmes, except the Economics and Statistics BSc, are accredited by the Royal Statistical Society, enabling you to be granted automatic Graduate Statistician (GradStat) status if you achieve second class Honours or better and choose a sufficient number of optional courses in Statistical Science. Graduates of the Economics and Statistics BSc may also be eligible depending on the courses they choose. Meetings of the Royal Statistical Society take place near to UCL, and are open to all. The student-run UCL Statistics Society also organises activities.

The Department also contributes to the Natural Sciences degree programme, which offers students the opportunity to study combinations of subjects including physics / astrophysics, mathematics, chemistry, earth sciences, life sciences, maths / statistics and science and technology studies.
