Module content and teaching

Principal aims

The department offers two types of project: group based and individually supervised.The group based project involves a small group of students and a member of the lecturing staff studying a common theme in a seminar before proceeding to individual problems based on that theme. For example you could learn about a certain class of statistical models and then individually try to fit the models to different data sets in order to gain some practical experience. Doing a group project you have the opportunity to learn from each other and develop skills together before tackling your own “case study”. An individually supervised 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.

Timetabled teaching activities
