Overview

Statisticians are in demand in many areas of industry and business. For example pharmaceutical companies and the National Health Service require statisticians to help with clinical trials of new treatments for diseases. Large manufacturing companies need statisticians to determine and analyse their quality control processes. Many government departments require highly trained statisticians.
As statistics is both practical and theoretical on this degree you will study both aspects. For example, probability theory to help understand random events, and modern computing techniques to analyse large amounts of data. The course will help to give you the communication skills you need to work as a statistician, where there is usually a substantial teamwork component.

Programme structure

A training in statistics offers a unique range of challenges and provides opportunities to work on a large variety of important problems in industry, environmental science, medical research and within the government. The technical skills that you will acquire are in great demand, as are the general skills of understanding and analysing problems and communicating the results to other scientists.

Transfer to this programme at the end of the first semester is possible from a number of other programmes in the School.

Career opportunities

Employability is embedded into modules from the first year onwards and right from the first lecture. We explain the degree skills which are taught throughout the modules and offer a number of optional employability modules.

We place great importance on the development of graduate skills vital for future employment by adding transferrable skills into learning and teaching.

Our degrees are a passport to vocational and non-vocational careers alike, with recent graduates employed in roles ranging from actuaries and statisticians to crime analysts and medical researchers.
