Studying Statistical Science

The Department of Statistical Science at UCL is the one of the oldest Statistics department in the world. Our MSc programmes provide skills that are currently highly sought after. Graduates receive advanced training in methods and computational tools for data analysis that companies and research organisations value.

One of the strengths of UCL Statistical Science is the breadth of expertise on offer; the research interests of staff span the full range from foundations to applications, and make important original contributions to the development of statistical science.

For instance, the new directives and laws for risk assessments in the banking and insurance industries, as well as the healthcare sector, require statistical experts trained at graduate level. The large amount of data processing in various industries (known as "data deluge") also necessitates cutting-edge knowledge in statistics. As a result, our recent graduates have been offered positions as research analysts or consultants, and job opportunities in these areas are increasing.
