Professional recognition

This programme will meet the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation, awarded by the Institute of Mathematics and its applications, when it is followed by subsequent training and experience in employment to obtain equivalent competences to those specified by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for taught masters degrees.

Statisticians provide important information, using appropriate statistical techniques with the help of their analytical and problem-solving skills, to assess and evaluate a wide range of issues in many fields including science and technology. This involves data collection, analysis, interpretation, statistical estimation, prediction, statistical modelling and simulation.

This programme aims to provide a thorough grounding in all of the techniques and principles commonly used by the professional statistician. It gives a firm foundation in the theoretical basis of these, but has an emphasis on application and the use of statistical software. Students can also take part in the Undergraduate Ambassadors Scheme which aims to encourage and nurture a new generation of mathematicians and gives students the opportunity to gain classroom experience as one of their final-year options.

Outcomes

The aims of the programme are to:

  • Provide students with a comprehensive understanding of statistical methods and techniques
  • Provide students with the knowledge of a range of statistical modelling techniques and the ability to apply them to real-life problems
  • Ensure students are able to comprehend problems, formulate them statistically, analyse them using statistical software tools, obtain results by appropriate methods, and interpret them.
