M.Sc. and PG.Dip. in Applied Statistics

The program consists of three parts, namely, Part 1, Part II and Part III.

Part 1 consists of 5 course units worth of 5 credits, which introduce elementary statistics and probability with minimal application of mathematics. Contents are restricted to standard applications of statistics without much theory.

Part II consists of 10 course units worth of 15 credits, which introduce essential statistical methods with basic theory without much mathematical proofs.

Part III consists of 5 course units worth of 10 credits and a research project worth of 450 credits. In this part students will learn advanced statistical theory and techniques.

Total program, including lectures and examinations, requires approximately 92 working Saturdays. Total duration of the M.Sc. program is approximately 2 years. The lengths of parts 1, 2, and 3 are approximately 4 months, 12 months, and 8 months, respectively.
