About

This Statistics with Data Science programme from The University of Edinburgh is designed to train the next generation of statisticians with a focus on the newly recognised field of data science. 

Overview

In this digital and data-rich era the demand for statistics graduates from industry, the public sector and academia is high, yet the pool of such graduates is small. The recent growth of data science has increased the awareness of the importance of statistics, with the analysis of data and interpretation of the results firmly embedded within this newly recognised field.

The syllabus combines rigorous statistical theory with wider hands-on practical experience of applying statistical models to data. In particular the programme includes:

  • classical and Bayesian ideologies
  • computational statistics
  • regression
  • data analysis of a range of models and applications

Graduates of the Statistics with Data Science programme from The University of Edinburgh will be in high demand. It is anticipated that the majority of students will be employed as statisticians within private and public institutions providing statistical advice/consultancy.

Career opportunities

Trained statisticians are in high demand both in public and private institutions. This programme will provide graduates with the necessary statistical skills, able to handle and analyse different forms of data, interpret the results and effectively communicate the conclusions obtained.

Graduates will have a deep knowledge of the underlying statistical principles coupled with practical experience of implementing the statistical techniques using standard software across a range of application areas, ensuring they are ideally placed for a range of different job opportunities.

The degree is also excellent preparation for further study in statistics or data science.
