Master of Statistics by Distance Learning

Online & Campus Combined Full time Part time 2 years September 2017 Belgium Hasselt Diepenbeek + 2 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. [+]

Masters in Statistics in Hasselt in Belgium. 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... [-]

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.
