In 2011, we updated our MSc in Statistics and introduced a new MSc in Statistics with Finance. Research projects have a good blend of theory and applications. We encourage all postgraduate Statistics students to take part in statistics seminars and to help in tutorial classes.
This 12 month postgraduate statistics course aims to train professional statisticians for posts in industry, government, research and teaching. It also provides a suitable preparation for careers in other fields requiring a strong statistical background.

This 12 month postgraduate statistics course aims to train professional statisticians for posts in industry, government, research and teaching. It also provides a suitable preparation for careers in other fields requiring a strong statistical background. The Royal Statistical Society (RSS), which has accredited the programme, has extensive information about career opportunities in statistics.
The statistics group at SMSAS is highly qualified to lead your advanced study in statistics and research in the field is thriving here. In the last Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), in 2008, we were ranked 8th in the UK for Statistics. Our research work informs our MSc teaching, through lectures, practical work and projects.
Both the RSS and Statisticians in the Pharmaceutical Society (PSI) offer prizes for students who perform exceptionally well on the MSc in Statistics.
This programme, which has recently been updated, trains professional statisticians for posts in industry, government, research and teaching. It provides a suitable preparation for careers in other fields requiring a strong statistical background. Core modules give a thorough grounding in modern statistical methods and there is the opportunity to choose additional topics to study.
You gain experience of analysing real data problems through practical classes and exercises. The course includes training in the computer language R.
You undertake a substantial project in statistics, supervised by an experienced researcher. Some projects are focused on the analysis of particular complex data sets while others are more concerned with generic methodology.
The following modules are indicative of those offered on this programme. This list is based on the current curriculum and may change year to year. Most programmes will require you to study a combination of compulsory and optional modules. You may also have the option to take modules from other programmes so that you may customise your programme and explore other subject areas that interest you.
Assessment is through coursework and formal examinations.
