Statistics with Financial Mathematics

**Accredited by the Royal Statistical Society** Graduates with skills in these areas are in demand. The course is about applying probabilistic, statistical and mathematical techniques in the finance industry. It's based on the MSc Statistics with additional training in the concepts, models and tools of modern mathematical finance. There are lectures, tutorials and computing sessions. You'll do group work, presentations and role play. Most statistics lectures are recorded so you can watch them again later. The distance learning option is taught online with support via email and an online forum. Distance learners also come to the University for residential weeks. **Not quite ready for a masters course yet?** We also offer a Graduate Certificate in Statistics. This nine-month, part-time course is designed for students who need extra training to qualify for one of our masters degrees. It's taught by distance learning, so you only need to be in Sheffield for your exams in June. Please see our University website for the most up-to-date course information.
