Applied Statistics

Our practically-orientated course gives you the skills employers are looking for - not just in terms of statistical knowledge, but transferable skills which will be useful whatever field you decide to work in. There is a shortage of well-qualified statisticians across the scientific, industrial and public sectors and a great demand for data analysts and statistical consultants, which our course has been specifically designed to meet.
