Requirements

Entry requirements for combined honours degrees are the same as for single honours, with the additional requirement that combinations that include mathematics must have A-level mathematics or equivalent. For combinations that include a language, a minimum of a GCSE at grade C may be required in that language.

Entry Requirements - Degree Programmes

For degree programmes we ask for at least 160 UCAS points. These can be made up from the following:

  • a maximum of 60 points may be obtained from AS-levels or ASVCEs alone; at least 100 points should be obtained from A-levels or AVCEs (formerly AGNVQs;
  • or at least 12 A-level points, if taken before 2002;
  • or an Advanced GNVQ with a minimum Merit profile (if taken before 2002);
  • or a BTEC National Diploma at MPP
  • or an International Baccalaureate, with at least 24 points

In addition, we normally require at least three GCSEs at grade C or above (including English and mathematics) or equivalent, for example, a Key Skills qualification.

Language skills

If English is not your first language, you will need to provide proof of your fluency in English before you can begin a programme. The main systems for measuring this are IELTS with a minimum score of 6.0 for degree programmes or TOEFL with a minimum score of 550 for degree programmes. Recently the TOEFL computer-based test has been abolished to make way for the introduction of the Internet-based test, gradually eliminating the traditional paper-based method. Other qualifications may be satisfactory. We can tell you what is acceptable.

Work Experience

No work experience is required.

Statistics is concerned with the collection, analysis and interpretation of data. The problems and techniques of statistics are wide-ranging, so career opportunities are extensive. For example, statisticians work in market research, business analysis and forecasting, medical, health or social science research, quality control, environmental and ecological science, and econometrics.

This programme provide a grounding in the techniques and principles professional statisticians commonly use. It also allows you to combine statistics with subjects such as business, law, psychology or a language. The degree is approved by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), subject to subsequent employment involving the application of mathematical knowledge, the programme can be used in part fulfilment of the requirements for Chartered Mathematician (CMath) status.

Statistics courses are taught by the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences at the Greenwich Campus. Depending on your selected combination you may be required to travel between campuses.
