Statistics

This programme introduces you to the methods of statistical analysis, together with the underlying theory and some of the associated mathematics. The Graduate Certificate is a standard qualifying course for Birkbeck's MSc Applied Statistics programmes. You will gain an understanding of statistical methods and will be able to apply them to the analysis of real-world data sets. You will also learn how to use statistical computer packages. This is an undergraduate-level qualification that will prepare you for postgraduate study. Graduate Certificates/Diplomas typically take one to two years to complete and are made up of two, three or four modules at final-year undergraduate degree level (worth 60, 90 or 120 credits). Highlights - Used mainly as a qualifying course for our MSc Applied Statistics for students who have a first degree in a different field and need to gain expertise in statistics and mathematics. - Ideal as a way to top up existing knowledge, as preparation for further graduate study or as a stand-alone course.

Entry requirements

Graduate Certificate: A first degree in any subject, plus A-level mathematics (or equivalent), or at least 60% in the Birkbeck module Calculus 1 (studied as an affiliate student).
