  • Make sure that you know who will be teaching you for your chosen programme and if these academics are in fact excelling in their respective fields. The teaching quality is quite variable, so it is good to choose a course and modules that are taught by experienced academics.

Description

In each year of your degree you will take a number of individual modules, normally valued at 15 or 30 credits, adding up to a total of 120 credits for the year. Modules are assessed in the academic year in which they are taken. The balance of compulsory and optional modules varies from programme to programme and year to year. A 30-credit module is considered equivalent to 15 credits in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).
In your first year, you will study mathematics, statistics and some computing, which will prepare you for increased specialistion in statistics in years two and three.
During the course of your degree, theoretical studies are balanced with developing practical skills, including in computing and the use of specialist software.
In the final year, there is considerable flexibility to bias your programme towards either the more mathematical or applied aspects of the subject. In particular, about one-quarter of your work will be on a project involving extensive research supervised by a member of staff within the Department of Statistical Science. Previous projects include the analysis of rainfall patterns in southern Africa, an analysis of data from a clinical trial and an analysis of volatility in financial markets.
