About

The aim of the Statistics (Research) programme at London School of Economics and Political Science is to foster an interest in theoretical and applied statistics and equip you for work as a professional statistician. This degree offers students who enjoy statistics the opportunity to build on their interests and learn how to apply their knowledge in the real world by analysing and critically interpreting data, building statistical models of real situations, and using cutting edge programming tools and software packages. 

Overview

The programme

The compulsory Statistics (Research) course offered by London School of Economics and Political Science will provide you with comprehensive coverage of fundamental aspects of probability and statistical methods and principles. It provides the foundations for the optional courses on more advanced statistical modelling, computational methods and advanced probability theory. Options also include specialist courses from the Departments of Methodology, Mathematics, Economics and Social Policy. Below are some indicative pathways:

  • Statistics route with a broad area of applications such as economics, research methodology and social sciences 
  • Route tailored towards computational statistics, machine learning and data science 
  • Route towards applications of statistics to econometrics and finance

Graduates of the programme are awarded Graduate Statistician (GradStat) status by the Royal Statistical Society. 

The research stream is similar to the MSc Statistics nine-month programme but involves a compulsory dissertation which replaces one unit's worth of optional courses and extends the length of the programme to 12 months.
