Birkbeck, University of London

Course Introduction

The programme is ideal if you are considering a career move into statistics, or if your work already involves aspects of data collection and exploration, the interpretation of statistics, or the use of advanced stochastic modelling techniques in the area of quantitative finance. The programme has been specially designed to meet the personal and career development needs of people who want to continue working, or gain valuable interning experience, while also studying in the evening. Many of our students, as part of their everyday work, are involved in data analysis, the interpretation of statistics, the optimal design and control of systems, and the modelling and prediction of time'dependent phenomena. They bring a wealth of knowledge and experience into the classroom, and you'll find yourself surrounded by committed, enthusiastic students from all backgrounds, careers and cultures.

Course Additional Entry

International entry requirements: if English is not your first language or you have not previously studied in English, our usual requirement is the equivalent of an International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic Test) score of 6.5, with not less than 6.0 in each of the sub'tests.
