Course summary

Statisticians play a vital role in many sectors. They work in global business, data analysis, artificial intelligence and healthcare modelling. During this degree you'll study concepts and techniques for modelling and get hands-on experience of data analysis. We'll develop a framework to help understand the logic of uncertainty. You will explore random variables and surrounding topics. Working in our computer labs will give you hands-on experience of using statistical software. This is the chance to put the statistical and probability theory you've learnt into practice. Our lecturers are experts in advanced mathematical techniques but you will also develop wider skills in analytical thinking and problem-solving. There's the opportunity to study topics from outside of mathematics, such as learning a language too.

  • Core modules will build on your understanding of the fundamentals of mathematics and statistics
  • Freedom to choose from a wide range of exciting optional modules
  • Accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications
  • Support from senior students on a range of important first-year topics is provided
There's a chance to spend time overseas through the university's study abroad programme, or apply for a work placement year as part of the course too. These are excellent ways in which to boost your CV when looking for jobs after graduation.
