Our practically-oriented course gives you the skills employers are looking for - not just in terms of statistical knowledge, but transferable skills which will be useful whatever field you decide to work in. There is a shortage of well-qualified statisticians across the scientific, industrial and public sectors and a great demand for data analysts and statistical consultants, which our course has been specifically designed to meet.
This is an applied course, with a strong emphasis on relating theory to practice, which aims to develop the analytical, logical, numerical and problem-solving skills that are in such demand with employers.
Middlesex is one of only four institutions in the UK which has been approved as a mirror for the statistical programming language R - meaning our students have access to this software and can use the same systems that are used in industry.
If you're working, you'll have the option of basing your independent project at your workplace - making your studies even more relevant and beneficial for both you and your employer. You'll have quite a free choice over what sort of project you do - it could be a more theoretical dissertation, a survey or a practical project involving a data set, whatever suits your interests and skills.
We intend to have the course accredited by the Royal Statistical Society so you will be granted Graduate Statistician Status when you complete it.
- Our subscriptions to Bloomberg and Datastream allow you to work with real datasets. You'll also learn how to use standard statistical software like SPSS and Minitab.
