MA4521 - Statistical Sciences Honours Part 1 of 2
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Science and Engineering
Available to graduates who have achieved a credit average in relevant third year subjects
in an undergraduate degree at this University and have shown an ability to apply statistical
concepts to their discipline. Graduates from other universities with equivalent qualifications
will be considered for acceptance. Except with the approval of the Head of School/Associate
Dean, all subjects in a chain must be studied in consecutive teaching periods.
The Honours in Statistical Sciences program is intended for students whose undergraduate
major is not in Mathematics or Statistics, but who have a major in another science
(or related) discipline and want to carry out a project where statistical techniques
can be applied to that area. As part of the program, students will need to acquire
mathematical skills that are appropriate to the project. Most students will also be
directed to study subjects within the School at an upper undergraduate or postgraduate
level in order to obtain these skills. Students eligible to do Statistics Honours
will be encouraged to take the Statistics Honours option.
- ability to carry out a substantial piece of research and write a dissertation;
- ability to formulate and solve research problems;
- to understand theoretical concepts in a broad range of topics which give background
to the research project.
- periodic informal examinations, seminar and research thesis.
As this subject is part of a subject chain, a final
standard grade (e.g. P, C) will only be recorded
for each subject after successful completion of all
parts of the subject chain.
