About Statistical Data Science at University of Kent

The International Master’s in Statistical Data Science develops your practical, statistical and computing skills to prepare you for a professional career in statistics or as a solid basis for further research in the area.

The programme has been designed to provide a deep understanding of the modern statistical methods required to model and analyse data. You will benefit from a thorough grounding in the ideas underlying these methods and develop your skills in key areas such as practical data analysis and data modelling.

It has been accredited by the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) and equips aspiring professional statisticians with the skills they need for posts in industry, government, research and teaching. It also enables you to develop a range of transferable skills that are attractive to employers within the public and private sectors.

Students whose mathematical and statistical background is insufficient for direct entry on to the appropriate programme, may apply for this course. The first year of the programme gives you a strong background in statistics, including its mathematical aspects, equivalent to the Graduate Diploma in Statistics. This is followed by the MSc in Statistical Data Science.
