Statistics at University of Nottingham - UCAS

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 to boost your CV when looking for jobs after graduation.


Core modules in your first year provide a solid foundation in the main mathematical topics. You'll also focus on probability and statistics. Key concepts in applied maths, calculus and linear mathematics will be introduced. Learning will be through lectures, problem classes, tutorials and computer workshops. In year two, core modules will enable you to study statistics and probability in more depth. You'll also broaden your knowledge through optional modules in topics such as real and complex analysis and modelling with differential equations. A mathematics group project in your third year will teach you valuable skills for your future employment. Through workshops and student-led group sessions, you'll improve your communication skills and learn to write up and report on your work in a technical and meaningful way. The final year gives you the opportunity to choose from a wide range of optional modules too.
