Statistical Science


Do I need to have studied Statistics as a separate subject or as part of my Mathematics qualifications?

Most of our students have studied some probability or statistics as part of their Mathematics A level, but this is not a requirement. Our first year undergraduate statistics courses do not assume any prior knowledge of probability or statistics.

As long as you show an informed interest in all components of the degree program for which you apply (including the statistical component) e.g. via the personal statement or extracurricular activities, the exact combination of modules you take for your Mathematics A level(s) is generally less important.
