What will I learn?

The BSc (Hons) in Statistics allows you to specialise in the branch of mathematics that focuses on collecting, analysing and presenting large quantities of numerical data. There are many practical applications for statistics, including fields such as science and medicine, government, business and education. Students of Statistics will acquire the analytical techniques, clear logical thinking and deductive reasoning necessary to explore some of these fascinating areas of research. Statistics is studied up to Honours level in both the Faculty of Science (BSc) and the Faculty of Arts (MA). Students who have a background in the Sciences or who wish to study Statistics alongside Science subjects at St Andrews should apply for the BSc. The BSc (Hons) in Statistics is a four-year course run by the School of Mathematics and Statistics. The School also offers an MA in Statistics, which may be more suitable for students who wish to take Statistics alongside Arts subjects. The Statistics element within both the BSc and MA degree programmes is exactly the same.
