The intention is to provide participants with a practical grasp of statistics based on a sound knowledge of the underlying ideas and concepts. Graduates of the course should be well placed to apply the ideas and methods to which they have been introduced in their own work. To this end, all the material is presented in the context of practical examples from a wide range of applications.
The Base Module discusses the fundamental inferential ideas underlying statistical methods. In dealing with these, more emphasis than is usual in first courses is placed on the idea of an underlying statistical model. It is hoped that this emphasis will develop insight into the essential unity of the methods and avoid the all-too-common impression of there being a cookbook full of different statistical recipes for every possible occasion! The Elective Modules apply these ideas to a range of specialised areas.
