MATH6031 Statistics Project
The Statistics Project gives MSc students to conduct an in-depth study, either of a particular advanced statistical methodology, or of the application of one or more methods to real applied problems. The aim is to develop skills of organising work, identifying and directing your own work and writing a comprehensive report on a major piece of work. The choice of project is determined by the student's own interests and every student will benefit from one-to-one meetings with a supervisor, usually a member of academic staff.
