Course description

Studentts talking
Students talking

This very flexible single honours degree programme is particularly for you if you expect to use statistics in your future professional work. You will develop the capacity to formulate and analyse problems and to interpret scientific evidence using appropriate statistical methodology.

A core of basic mathematics, probability and statistics  provides you with the fundamental knowledge and skills, and the basis for more advanced work later on. The core material is covered in the first three semesters, up to the mid-point of your second year. You develop your capacity to learn and apply mathematical and statistical ideas, to understand the significance and power of mathematics, and to acquire a thorough knowledge and understanding of those  topics that any employer would expect of a Mathematics and Statistics graduate. 

After your first three semesters, you chose your lecture courses from a widening range of options in order that you can pursue those areas which most interest you.   In the final year at least half of your module choices will be in probability and statistics.  You can choose to do a final year project instead of a lecture course on an appropriate topic supervised by a member of the academic staff.

Fees

Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2018 will be £9,250. Future inflationary increases may also be applied to each subsequent year of your course, subject to government regulations on fee increases. Tuition fees for international students will be £22,000 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate finance pages.
