The need for well-trained applied statisticians, biostatisticians and bioinformaticians is ever increasing, enhanced by the scientific revolution in molecular biology and genetics, and its impact on health and the environment. The Master of Statistics at Hasselt University, with specializations in Biostatistics, Biostatistics ICP, Bioinformatics and Epidemiology & Public Health Methodology, keep abreast with such evolutions.

The master programme combines a solid study of principles of applied and biostatistics with up-to-date training in topics such as clinical trials, public health, longitudinal data, survival analysis, genetics, survey methodology, etc. The specialization in Bioinformatics allows keeping an even closer pace with the more specific professional needs and skills required by the developments of the novel experimental techniques in molecular biology and genetics.
