Course programme

MSc Applied Statistics and Operational Research

Part-Time Programme

Many students, as part of their everyday work, are involved in data analysis, the interpretation of statistics, the optimal design and control of systems or in the modelling and prediction of time dependent phenomena. Over two years, in lectures and in practical computing sessions, the courses cover both the theory and the application of modern statistical and mathematical modelling techniques required to solve applied problems in industry, the public services, commerce and research. While practically oriented, the programmes all proceed from a strong theoretical background so as to develop the ability to tackle new and non-standard problems with confidence. The mutual dependence of practice and theory is emphasised wherever possible.

The MSc is accredited by the Royal Statistical Society for Graduate Statistician status.

Applicants who do not fully satisfy the entrance requirements, but who have a degree or equivalent qualification, and some knowledge of statistics, may be admitted to the part-time MSc Qualifying Course. The examination at the end of the qualifying course consists of papers in theoretical statistics, practical statistics and subsidiary mathematics. Passing these examinations entitles the candidate to a Graduate Certificate in Statistics. To qualify for entry to the MSc programme, the examinations must be passed at the level of a second-class honours degree. Exemption may be granted from part of the qualifying course and from the corresponding part of the examination.
