2.11 Year 3 MMORSE Statistics with Mathematics Course Regulations

Statistics with Mathematics Stream

Objective: To prepare students for employment as statisticians and for research into statistics.

Syllabus: All the major areas of probability modelling, stochastic processes and statistical modelling.

Loading / Requirements

These requirements are in addition to the course regulations for all streams of MMORSE which must also be satisfied.

Students must take the core modules, at least 15 CATS from List E and at least 15 CATS from List F. In addition students must choose an appropriate number of modules from List E, List F, Optional Modules and Unusual Options to reach the minimum load.

Optional Modules

Optional modules are subject to change from year to year and some modules may be subject to availability / module preregistration.

For students who entered before 20/21: Optional modules that do not require an unusual option form are those listed in any stream of the third or fourth year of any MMORSE stream or in the third year of BSc MORSE.

For students who entered in or after 20/21: Optional modules that do not require an unusual option form are those listed in any stream of the third year of any MMORSE stream or BSc MORSE.

An illustrative table of modules that may be listed in other MORSE streams / programmes is shown below.
This was taken at a single snapshot in time - it is not a definitive guide and students are required to check that these modules are still listed in other streams / programmes.
