The course will develop your practical and technical skills through analytical work based on real-world situations, from areas as diverse as social sciences, medicine or sport. You will explore the techniques employed in modern statistical research and, for the practical element, you will use industry-standard statistical software for the analysis of complex data.
As important as the analysis itself, you will learn to choose the most suitable statistical model for the type of data you’re faced with, and to communicate your conclusions clearly and succinctly. These aptitudes are part of a suite of transferable skills you’ll develop, including problem-solving and self-reflection, which will set you up to progress quickly in your statistical career.
Our MSc Statistics course is taught by academics with an international reputation for quality research. You will be part of our vibrant mathematics community, and you will be encouraged to engage with staff research and access our valuable network of partners and contacts.
You’ll learn from a team of leading mathematicians and statisticians.
Our internationally diverse teaching team come from a wide range of backgrounds and have a wealth of experience between them. They have expertise and experience in areas from medical statistics to distribution theory, from sequential surveillance to modelling data for sports predictions; knowledge that you can draw on for your final Masters Project.
An MSc in statistics opens up a range of career options within business, industry, higher education or research institutes.
The course content is aligned to the requirements of the Royal Statistical Society and is regularly reviewed against professional benchmarks. As such you will develop a range of high level theoretical, analytical and computational statistics skills that will enable you to meet your career aspirations, whether you’re new to statistics or already working in a related field.
You’ll also enhance your employability by developing strong transferable skills, especially with respect to communicating ideas in written and spoken forms, personal time management, problem solving abilities and independent learning skills.
Working on group projects based on real world scenarios is the perfect grounding for your future career, exposing you to the diverse experiences of peers, awareness of business practice and appreciation of how statistical consultancy operates in practice.
During the course we’ll also encourage you to build a network of professional contacts by attending events such as the Royal Statistical Society North Eastern Local Group seminar series, or with Data Science North East. This will provide insight into potential future developments in professional practice, and allow you to seize any opportunity that presents itself.
