About

Currently, students without sufficient statistical background knowledge can attain masters level proficiency by first completing the Higher Diploma in Statistics followed by the MSc in Statistics, which takes two years. The MA in Statistics at the University College Dublin provides an alternative pathway in 16 months and there is no comparable programme in Ireland or the UK.
