You will study a variety of problem-solving techniques, allowing you to build and use mathematical and statistical models, alongside skills to develop your abilities to communicate effectively to others. The programme will prepare you with essential techniques in Operational Research and Applied Statistics, and allow you to then select from a number of interesting and varied optional courses in topics such as supply chain modelling, healthcare, and Statistics and Operational Research for Government (delivered with input from the Office for National Statistics and Welsh Assembly Government). As well as studying the foundations in Operational Research and Applied Statistics, you will study further topics in actuarial risk, financial modelling and credit risk scoring, and is ideal for those who wish to study in greater depth risk models, particularly for application to financial markets but also to other sectors.
We have designed and structured the programmes with both full and part-time students in mind. By adopting an efficient modular approach to teaching, part-time students will typically only need to be in the University for lectures and workshops for the equivalent of one day per week over 24 weeks each year, and complete the taught component of the programme over two years with up to a further year to complete the project dissertation. Full-time students will complete the programme in 12 months, which includes a 3 month period working with a company on a real problem of importance to that company.
