An MSc is generally accepted as being highly desirable for starting and developing a career in Statistics, for example as a statistical consultant in Industry, or in the public sector. The MSc in Statistics is also an excellent preparation for embarking on a PhD project in Statistics.
The MSc in Statistics, taught by one of the largest and strongest Statistics groups in the UK, will provide you with sound Masters-level training in Statistical methodology, with an emphasis on practical problems arising in the context of collecting and analysing scientific data.
The programme structure allows you to select options ranging from the more theoretical aspects of Statistics, including a module on research topics, to those which cover material focussed on real world applications of Statistics.
While studying for your degree, you will develop key transferrable skills, such as written and oral communication, the use of and some programming in Statistical software, time management, and basic research skills.
