Information for visiting students

As most of the Department’s teaching is concentrated between October and March it is recommended that students should be registered for the full academic year. Each module runs for ten weeks and there is scope for selection amongst the modules. An essential prerequisite for all modules is a first year university module in calculus. Advanced statistics modules are recommended as suitable only for students specialising in Mathematics or Statistics at university level.
