The PGDip/MSc in Applied Statistics and Datamining is a commercially relevant programme of study providing students with the statistical data analysis skills needed for business, commerce and other applications. The programme is aimed at individuals with a good degree containing quantitative elements, who wish to gain statistical data analysis skills relevant to business, commerce and other applications. The programme offers preparation for commercial data analysis, a commercially relevant course of study that has content aligned with the requirements of partners in the commercial analysis sector and strongly applied bias, with an emphasis on application in the commercial sector. Dissertation topics are generated in part by our commercial partners. Teaching is usually within widespread commercial, rather than research, software packages for example SAS and SPSS. Teaching consists of a mixture of short, intense courses with a large proportion of continuous assessment and more traditional lecture courses with end of semester exams.
