The Applied Statistics program at Macquarie University concentrates on specialised areas of study, such as biostatistics, data mining, epidemiological methods, generalised linear models, marketing research, time series and stochastic finance. 


As the world becomes increasingly dependent on analysing and interpreting data, the demand for highly trained statisticians continues to grow. 

Those with expert knowledge and skills in applied statistics will be able to advance their career in this increasingly important field, particularly in organisations such as research institutes, insurance companies, financial institutions, medical institutions, government departments and industries.

The Applied Statistics program at Macquarie University has a strong focus on the application of contemporary statistical methods and the use of the latest computational techniques. 

The development of relevant computing skills also forms an integral part of this degree.
