The MSc in Statistical Science is a twelve-month full-time taught master’s degree running from October to September each academic year. It focuses on modern computationally-intensive theory and methods. Students will be trained to solve real-world statistical problems. When completing the course, students can choose an appropriate statistical method to solve a given problem of data analysis, implement the analysis on a computer and communicate their results clearly and succinctly. The MSc offers a broad high-level training in applied and computational statistics, statistical machine learning, and the fundamental principles of statistical inference. Training is delivered through mathematically demanding lectures and problems classes, hands-on practical sessions in the computer laboratory, report writing and dissertation supervision. Students will have around three months to work on their dissertation with guidance from their supervisor. Students will be assessed on their performance in two written examinations around May, through their work in the assessed practical problems set during the year, and by the quality and depth of their dissertation.
