ST415 Statistics Masters Dissertation

Only available to year 4 integrated Masters students.

The department offers individually supervised projects. A project involves working, with the support of a member of the lecturing staff, on a topic specific to you. The range of topics is very wide and reflects the research interests of the lecturing staff. Other titles are possible by individual arrangements.

Deadlines and other practicalities

A list giving details of the projects available will be published on the ST415 module resource page. A project induction session for third year students is held in term 3. After the induction third year M-degree students should consult with potential supervisors. Students will be asked to submit their three top project choices online.

Project assignments will then be made by the end of term 3.

Changes of supervisor (and project) are not permitted after week 6 of term 1 (autumn term).

The deadline for submission of the written dissertation is the Friday of week 2 of term 3 (summer term).

All projects, including those supervised by WBS and by Economics, must be submitted to the Statistics Reception and Student Support Office.

If you know that you will not meet the deadline, or you experience any difficulties which prevent you from meeting the deadline, please inform your supervisor and the Student Support Office as soon as possible.

You must submit an electronic copy of your dissertation as a pdf file. A website for submission will be provided and the online system will provide you with a receipt.

You must make a five minute oral presentation that will be scheduled on Wednesday, of Week 10 Term 1 (Autumn term). You must also participate in a poster presentation on Wednesday in week 10 of Term 2 (Spring Term). These days must be kept free, apart from scheduled lectures.

A full set of guidance notes is available on the ST415 module resource page.
