Knowledge of introductory probability and statistical theory, and the associated necessary mathematical theory.

Registration process

STAT0029 is specified as a formal option within the following postgraduate programmes:

  • MSc Computational Statistics and Machine Learning;
  • MSc Data Science and Machine Learning.

Students from these programmes should simply register for STAT0029 on Portico and await a decision. It is not necessary to register separately with a member of staff in the Department of Statistical Science (successful admission to the programme already demonstrates that the prerequisites can be met).

STAT0029 is NOT offered as an elective.
