Course Summary

This course gives you advanced knowledge of statistical methods and the theory that underpins these methods. With a strong emphasis on relating theory to practice, you will develop your analytical, logical, numerical and problem-solving, skills that are in such high demand with employers. Case studies will help you to relate theory to practice, and we will encourage you to think critically; some of your work will be done in groups. You will supplement all this with your own independent reading and study, including the use of online resources. There is a great shortage of well qualified statisticians, data analysts and statistical consultants across the sector and this course has been specifically designed to meet that demand.

There is a need in both the public and private sectors for well-qualified statisticians and this course will leave you ideally placed for a wide variety of employment opportunities in: commerce; economics; accountancy; health sciences; natural and environmental sciences; computing; engineering; law; medical statistics; medical research; pharmaceutical industry. You might also wish to explore your options in research or academia, or even complete further study at doctoral level. Statisticians work in many fields, from government to market research, measuring anything from changes in the environment revealing the effects of global warming to the effectiveness of medicines. There are a large number of employment opportunities for our graduates in medical statistics, medical research, commerce and industry, particularly the pharmaceutical industry. There are also many career opportunities both in areas directly related to statistics, such as economics and accountancy, and wider field in areas like health sciences, natural and environmental sciences, computing, engineering and law.
