Statistics

The School of Mathematics is ranked in the top five in the UK for world-reading research (REF 2014). Our taught MSc in Statistics provides one year of postgraduate training in the theory and practice of modern statistics to prepare you for PhD study and for a career in data-intensive and evidence-driven fields. The programme comprises two terms of taught units, ending in May, and then a substantial research project which takes place over the summer. Under the guidance of a personal tutor, you will select taught units from the wide range of third- and fourth-year units offered by the School of Mathematics, subject to some constraints. These units tend to be quite theoretical, although some have more practical components in coursework and assessment. Research projects are individually supervised, and offer you the opportunity to explore a theoretical topic in more detail or to develop applied skills in data management, processing, analysis and visualisation.

Entry requirements

A first class honours degree (or equivalent) in mathematics, statistics, or a subject with substantial statistical and/or mathematical content.

Your degree course must have covered the material in our second-year undergraduate syllabus for the Statistics 2 and Probability 2 units, as these are prerequisites for core units on the MSc. See the unit syllabuses online at bristol.ac.uk/maths/study/undergraduate/units/ for more details.
