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.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
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.
For degree programmes we ask for at least 160 UCAS points. These can be made up from the following:
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.
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.
No work experience is required.
