The Master of Statistics by Distance Learning at Hasselt University 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.
Assessment and ExaminationOne 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. Hence, at this stage of the implementation, examinations will be held for all student on campus. Travel and accommodation expenses are to be fully financed by the student himself, without any exception. Some basic practical assistance (essentially contacts of youth hostels and hotels in the neighbourhood) is offered by our administrative offices.
- The introductory phase provides thorough fundamental knowledge of statistics. Students will become familiar with data, statistical analysis, and, first and foremost, statistical concepts and reasoning. Apart from topic related subjects, such as regression and analysis of variance, a lot of attention is devoted to group based project work.
- In the first semester students of Epidemiology & Public Health Methodology and Biostatistics have 5 compulsory subjects, a group project and one optional subject.
