Royal Statistical Society grants unconditional accreditation to the department's undergraduate programmes

This means that any student graduating from one of our programmes will have the opportunity to gain Graduate Statistician (GradStat) status with the RSS. GradStat status adds further value to your degree qualification and the chance to access further professional development opportunities.

MORSE student has been selected to represent United Nations Women UK
Dhruv Kulshreshtha, a first year MORSE student, has been selected to represent UN Women UK as a delegate to the 65th session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, taking place in March 2021. The UNCSW that is typically held in the United Nations Headquarters in New York will be a fully digital conference this year because of the covid-19 pandemic.
Through his participation in the CSW, Dhruv aims to promote the need for more men to actively participate in gender equality movements pertaining to domestic violence, harassment, and discrimination against women. As a member of the #heforshe campaign, he also hopes to learn about, and contribute to, the main theme of CSW21: "Women in Public Life - Equal Participation in Decision Making."
Stats MSc student publishes in Early Medieval History
It is not unheard-of for Stats MSc students to find their MSc dissertation leading to a publication, but rather less common for the publication to be a component of a book on early medieval history! But that's what happened to Clair Barnes' MSc dissertation ("Statistics in Anglo-Saxon Archaeology", Department of Statistics, Warwick, 2015); you can read all about it in:
Barnes, C., and W.S. Kendall. “Perches, Post-Holes and Grids.” In Planning in the Early Medieval English Landscape, edited by Blair, Rippon & Smart, Liverpool University Press, Appendix A, 213–31, 2020.
Clair started off studying English Literature as an undergraduate at UCL, but then took an OU degree in Math & Stats while working after graduation. That led to a Warwick MSc in Stats and most recently to a return to UCL, working for a PhD in statistical meteorology at UCL. Statistical science leads to all sorts of unexpected adventures ... https://blogs.warwick.ac.uk/randomcuriosities/entry/stats_msc_student/
