Applied Statistics

As a postgraduate student in the department of Mathematics and Stats at Reading, you will be part of a large and vibrant group of around 40 postgraduate students working towards a PhD, in addition to a thriving group of newly completed PhDs working as postdoctoral researchers. In the first year of your degree course, we require you follow a programme of relevant postgraduate lecture courses. You will also be involved in opportunities to communicate your work and networking with other researchers, presenting seminar, speaking at conferences and workshops, and visiting or hosting researchers from elsewhere. Some of our PhD students are involved in interdisciplinary projects or projects with an industrial partner. In these cases they are followed by at least two supervisors, and interact with a wider range of staff. Where industry is involved, students typically spend 4-week placements each year with the company.
