Statistics, a pervasive subject with diverse applications, is concerned with the use of appropriate statistical techniques in the analysis of data to help us understand, model and reveal important information, such as hidden features and patterns. This involves data collection, design of methods, statistical estimation and prediction, interpretation, probabilistic modelling and simulation.
This Statistics Hons programme from the University of Greenwich provides a thorough grounding in all of the techniques and principles commonly used by the professional statistician. It gives a firm foundation in the theoretical basis of these, but has an emphasis on application and the use of statistical software. In response to increased interest by students wishing to pursue a career in teaching, we have developed new final-year courses, including Mathematics in Society and the Undergraduate Ambassadors Scheme. In particular, the Ambassador Scheme aims to encourage and nurture a new generation of mathematicians and gives students the opportunity to gain classroom experience as one of their final-year options.
Graduates have opportunities in market research, business analysis and forecasting, medical, health or social science research, quality control, insurance, environmental and ecological science, actuarial work and econometrics
This degree (including the combined honours variants) are approved by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications. Subject to subsequent employment involving the application of mathematical knowledge, the programme can also be used in part fulfilment of the requirements for chartered mathematician status.
