In this module, a substantial investigation will be carried out on a topic in Statistics or Probability. The study will be largely self-directed, although a supervisor will provide oversight and input where necessary. The topic will be chosen by agreement between yourself and your supervisor. The topic could be based on the statistical analysis of a substantial dataset, an investigation into statistical methodology or an investigation into a topic of applied probability or probability theory. It is expected that most projects will contain an element of statistical computing

The course comprises 180 credits, split across 120 credits´ worth of taught modules and a 60-credit research project.

Modules are mainly delivered through lectures and example and /or problem classes for smaller groups. You will typically be assessed by an examination or coursework at the end of the semester in which a given module is taught.
