This programme is accredited by the Royal Statistical Society and provides a broad, thorough and intellectually challenging training in the theory and practice of statistical science. Skills in statistics are valued by a variety of employers and can be applied to various problems in science, medicine, technology, finance and economics.

In each year of your degree you will take a number of individual modules, normally valued at 0.5 or 1.0 credits, adding up to a total of 4.0 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 1.0 credit is considered equivalent to 15 credits in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).

During the course of your degree, theoretical studies are balanced with developing practical skills, including the use of specialist software. 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.

Over the whole three years, theoretical studies are balanced with an emphasis on practical work (including the use of computers) and realistic illustration of theoretical concepts.

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.
