Master of Statistics by Distance Learning

Hasselt University
Online & Campus Combined Part time 2 years September 2017 Belgium Hasselt Diepenbeek + 1 more

One of the principles we are bearing in mind when setting up the Distance program is to keep it as close to the On-Campus program as possible, not only its content and teaching methods, but also the way of assessing students. [+]

Distance Learning Option From the academic year 2014-2015 onwards, the Master of Statistics will be gradually offered as Distance Learning (DL) Program, next to and in parallel with the on-campus program. Enrolling for the DL Program means that as a student you will take the program from a distance, i.e. from home, workplace or virtually any place with access to the internet. Program In 2014-2015 we offer a program of 30 credits with an equal spread over the first and second semester. As can be seen in the table below, you can take three courses in the first semester between September 2014 and January 2015, and 3 courses in the second semester between February and June 2015. One unit (P-LFD) is a project that runs over both semesters, i.e. between September 2014 and June 2015. The on- and off-campus program will be offered in parallel, synchronized as far as practically feasible, and with maximal flexibility. It will be possible to switch between the on-campus and off-campus programs. The content and learning outcomes within and across courses are identical. In 2015-2016 we plan to offer the full-time program (60 credits) for the first year of the Master program in Distance Learning, as well as part of the second year. In practice the study load has proven to be too heavy to combine the full-time program (60 credits) with a job. Combining a parttime program of 30 credits with a (parttime) job is expected to be feasible. Assessment and Examination One of the principles we are bearing in mind when setting up the Distance program is to keep it as close to the On-Campus program as possible, not only its content and teaching methods, but also the way of assessing students. Hence, at this stage of the implementation, examinations will be held for all student on campus. On campus means that we have three universities were the exams will be arranged: University of Hasselt, campus Diepenbeek, satellite university Anton De Kom (ADEKUS) in Paramaribo, Suriname and University of Gondar. This implies that students taking the DL program can choose the destination as close to their home country. We are also trying to make it possible in the future to arrange exams in other universities around the world. Travel and accommodation expenses are to be financed by the student himself, but practical assistance is offered by our administrative offices. There are essentially two options. One option is to participate in all exam sessions, after each semester (January and June), and if necessary, in the re-examination period (mid August - first week of September). If not feasible you could opt for the possibility to take all exams in the August-September period. This latter option however does not allow you to retake any exam within one academic year. Registration Students selected for the DL program will be informed by the university. Their pre-registration will be updated to Distance learning program and a payment request for tuition fee and insurance fee will be sent by email. Only after receipt of the payment of both tuition fee and insurance fee (2 months (January and June, € 40/month) the student will be enrolled in the program. If student needs to travel to Hasselt University for re-sit exams in August an additional €40 insurance fee will have to be paid. Tuition fee The tuition fee for the Distance Learning Program depends on your country of origin: students from Belgium pay a fix fee of €61.90 + €9.30 per credit. Hence, a 30 ECTS credit program costs € 340.90 students from the developing countries in the following list pay € 80: Africa: Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, DR Congo, Ethiopia, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Marocco, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, South-Africa, Tanzania, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe Asia: Bangladesh, Camodia, India, Indonesia, Jordan, Laos, Nepal, Palestinian Territories, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Vietnam South America: Bolivia, Brasil, Colombia, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Equador, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay Students coming from all other parts of the world pay € 1057. Requirements Technical requirements In order to follow the Distance program you evidently need to be able to have access to (or own) a computer with a sufficiently recent operating system and with an internet connection that allows you to download documents and to stream videos (at least 3Mbps). A limited number of software packages need to be downloaded: R and LaTeX are available online for free; SAS can be downloaded from the UHasselt intranet (but hence a sufficiently fast internet connection is needed) or you can use the SAS Web Editor. More detailed information will be delivered to you after registration. Requirements concerning accredited prior learning As is the case for the On-Campus students, you need to hold at least a university diploma or degree certificate or a diploma of higher education equivalent to a bachelor’s degree (180 ECTS credit points). Admission can be given directly, conditionally or indirectly after finalization of a preparatory programme. Language requirements Candidates who wish to register in an English language Master’s program have to demonstrate good command of English, both written and spoken. English language skills need to be confirmed by a recent score on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) or any recognised proficiency test. The English proficiency test can be waivered if your education was (partly) in English or if English is a national language in your home country. [-]

Master's Programme in Mathematical Sciences

University of Gothenburg, Faculty of Science
Campus Part time 2 years September 2017 Sweden Gothenburg

The programme has the following specializations: Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Financial Mathematics, and Mathematical Statistics. [+]

Top Part time Masters in Statistics in Europe. The use of mathematical and statistical models and methods have facilitated tremendous advances in knowledge during the last few centuries. Still, it may be today that the growth in ways of applying mathematical sciences is at its greatest, as ever-increasing data-collection and computing possibilities make new application ideas feasible. Examples of this include finding disease-related genes, cryptography for the internet, and risk computations for new financial instruments. At the same time, the strong tradition of pure research in mathematics is continuing, where the research goal is simply to follow the human need to explore, and to understand the logical consequences of axioms. The interplay between these two sides of our field make this a very exciting time to study mathematics. The Department of Mathematical Sciences has strong traditions in both pure and applied research. The fact that we are a joint department, part of both Chalmers Technical University and University of Gothenburg, gives us a size and contact surface that make many cooperations and specializations possible. We have research groups in algebraic geometry and number theory, biomathematics, complex analysis, computational mathematics, discrete mathematics, harmonic analysis and partial differential equations, kinetic theory, optimization, probability theory, wavelets, bioinformatics and statistical genetics, biostatistics, spatio-temporal stochastic models with environmental and marine applications, population dynamics, particle systems and statistical physics, extreme value theory, telecommunications, material fatigue and reability, environmental statistics, spatial statistics and image analysis, markov theory and algorithmic applications, and mathematical finance. As well as qualifying for graduate studies in mathematics and mathematical statistics, the Master's Programme can provide you with a background desirable to many employers, such as medical, industrial, consulting, insurance, or financial businesses, or public employers. The programme has the following specializations: Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Financial Mathematics, and Mathematical Statistics. A number of advanced courses are available for each specialization. It is possible to complement your background with courses on a more basic level, or to follow research-level courses. The specialization towards financial mathematics is a cooperation with the school of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg. The programme contains a masters thesis project of 30 higher educational credits, which may be done in cooperation with an external institution. [-]

The need for well-trained biostatisticians, bioinformaticians and epidemiological and public-health scientists is ever increasing, enhanced by the scientific revolution in molecular biology and genetics, its impact on health and the environment, as well as by the availability of ‘big data’ and progress in data science. Hasselt University’s Master of statistics with specializations: Biostatistics, Bioinformatics and Epidemiology & Public Health Methodology, keeps abreast of such evolutions. The master programme combines a solid study of principles of applied and biostatistics with up-to-date information on topics such as clinical trials, public health, longitudinal data, survival analysis, genetics, survey methodology, etc. The specialisation in Bioinformatics makes it possible to keep an even closer pace with the more specific professional needs and skills required due to the development of novel experimental techniques in molecular biology and genetics. Hasselt University’s Master of statistics acquired accreditation from the prestigious Royal Statistical Society. Graduates from accredited courses will be granted the society’s professional status of graduate statistician on application. Graduate statistician is a grade of professional membership of the society. It provides formal recognition of an individual’s statistical qualifications. Graduate statisticians will be able to further undertake suitable professional training and experience, normally for at least five years, so as to be eligible to apply for Chartered statistician status. Students can choose between four specialisations: ... [-]
