MSc International Master's in Statistics with Finance
Accredited by the Royal Statistical Society (RSS), this programme is an excellent preparation for careers in fields requiring a strong statistical and financial background.
Linear algebra, analysis, regression and probability and inference are core topics for the first year of this 2 year programme, which also includes a dissertation module. In the second year the range of topics broadens to include key financial topics as well as more specialised areas of statistics such as stochastic processes.
The Statistics Group is forward-thinking, with varied research, and received consistently high rankings in the last two Research Assessment Exercises.
In 2011, we updated our MSc in Statistics and introduced a new MSc in Statistics with Finance. Research projects have a good blend of theory and applications. We encourage all postgraduate Statistics students to take part in statistics seminars and to help in tutorial classes.
Students whose mathematical and statistical background is insufficient for direct entry on to the appropriate programme, may apply for this course. The first year of the programme gives you a strong background in statistics, including its mathematical aspects, equivalent to the Graduate Diploma in Statistics. This is followed by the MSc in Statistics or MSc in Statistics with Finance.
